NBC News reports:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) fired back at Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) Monday afternoon after he called her and three other freshman congresswomen targeted by President Trump “anti-Semitic” and “communists.”
Graham made the remarks in defending a series of tweets from Trump aimed at Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), telling them to “go back” to “countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe.”
All of the freshmen congresswomen were born in the U.S. except Omar, who is a U.S. citizen.
I see @LindseyGrahamSC’s biggest issue w/ Trump’s racism is that it doesn’t go far enough – Graham wants to bring back 1950s McCarthyism, too.
GOP is doing this because they have no plan for our future.
We’re the ones fighting for healthcare, edu, good jobs, & they got nothing. https://t.co/pfAEATWbJl
