Speaker Nancy Pelosi is poised to introduce new legislation this week that directly condemns President Trump’s “xenophobic tweets” regarding “radical Democrats” currently serving in the House of Representatives.
“The House cannot allow the President’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand. Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets,” Pelosi wrote in a letter.
“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” she added. “Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy that reflects American values.”
The President doubled-down on his heated rhetoric Monday afternoon; telling far-left lawmakers to leave the country if “they’re not happy here.”
“They’re very unhappy. I’m watching them, all they do is complain. All I’m saying is: If they want to leave, they can leave!” Trump told journalists.

“These are people, that in my opinion, hate our country… If they’re not happy here, they can leave. I’m sure there will be many people that won’t miss them. They have to love our country, they’re Congress people. These are people, that if they don’t like it here then they can leave,” he added.
Sen. Lindsey Graham erupted on far-left Democrats Monday morning; saying the progressive wing of the party “hates Israel and hates our own country” and are running on a “disgusting” agenda.
Graham was speaking with ‘Fox and Friends’ when he was asked to comment on the President’s recent war-of-words with the so-called “Squad” of liberal lawmakers.
“They hate Israel. They hate our own country. They’re calling the guards along our border ‘Concentration Camp’ guards. They accuse people who support Israel of doing it for ‘the Benjamins.’ They’re anti-Semitic, they’re anti-America,” said Graham.
“I think they’re American citizens that are elected, that are running on an agenda that is disgusting… They’re socialist, they’re anti-Semitic, they stand for all the things most Americans disagree with,” he added.
