Donald Trump on Monday renewed his attacks on four first-year Democratic House reps, telling them they should leave the United States and suggesting that the four women are actually communists, taking to Twitter on Monday evening to declare, “We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country.” Trump then wrote, in all capitals, “IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!”
A close Trump ally in the United States Senate, South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, echoed Trump’s attacks on the quartet of Democrats, but took the verbal assault even further, labeling the four House reps — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley — “communists” themselves, according to a CNN report.
“We all know that (Ocasio-Cortez) and this crowd are a bunch of communists,” Graham said in a Fox News interview, quoted in the CNN report. “They hate Israel, they hate our own country.”
While none of the four reps have made any remarks suggesting that they belong to, or are sympathetic with, the Communist Party, intelligence expert Malcolm Nance noted on Twitter Monday afternoon that, in fact, it is not Democrats but Republicans who are “literally commie lovers!”
To support his claim that Republicans are more sympathetic to communists than Democrats, Nance cited Trump’s self-proclaimed “love” for North Korea’s leader and Communist Party Chairman, Kim Jong-Un. In fact, Trump said in February, that he and Kim “fell in love,” as quoted by The Washington Post.
