In her first interview since declining an invitation from Israel to visit her grandmother in the West Bank, "Squad" member Rashida Tlaib labeled President Trump a "white supremacist."
"It's been very clear to me, especially this last week, that he's scared of us," Tlaib said in an interview with the Guardian that was published on Saturday.
"He's afraid of women of color … because we're not afraid of him and we're not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda," Tlaib continued.
"What he's doing by choosing us four as his target is trying to distract folks from the fact that more people are living in poverty than ever, because he has failed as a president," the Squad member continued.
The Minnesota Democrat has been targeted by President Trump quite a bit with criticism. In their latest feud President Trump tweeted that he did not "buy her tears" after Tlaib cried at a press conference just after she declined an invitation from Israel to visit her grandmother.
Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long. Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!

At what point does the left realize that every Republican is not a "white supremacist." When "racist" didn't garner the attention it once did, they moved on to "white supremacist." One can only imagine what will be next when "white supremacist" loses its luster, which it probably already has.
Perhaps instead of hurling insults they should work on improving the parts of the country they are representing.
