President Donald Trump disturbed Americans everywhere on Sunday when a Twitter thread of his expressed a new and deeper level of racist sentiment.

Railing against the "Squad" of freshman progressive lawmakers—Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Trump claimed that the women should "go back" to their countries.


All of the women Trump is referring to are American citizens, three of whom were born in the United States. It's unclear which countries Trump was urging them to return to, and Democrats everywhere immediately decried the racist comments.

Yet Trump showed no regret. In fact, he's now demanding that the congresswomen apologize to him and the rest of the country, accusing the women of racism instead.

People weren't about to let his racism and hypocrisy go unchecked.

One group, however, was noticeably silent.

At this time, no prominent Republican lawmakers have rebuked Trump's comments.
