US President Donald Trump took aim at the "Squad" again on Twitter Monday afternoon.

"The “Squad” is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border...And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!" he tweeted.


"The Squad" consists of freshman American representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley.

Last week Trump and Ocasio-Cortez got into a Twitter feud after the president tweeted:
“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.”

The following day, Senator Lindsay Graham was on Fox and Friends calling the women "anti-American, anti-Israel and communists." Trump then tweeted his comments to which the entire Democratic Party condemned the comments, while the Republicans remained largely silent.
