Warren Defends AOC’s Squad, Says “This is their country…They should be treated with respect”

Elizabeth Warren stepped in to the firestorm between President Trump and AOC’s squad by demanding Trump respect AOC’s “squad” that consists of her, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley.

Warren made it clear that in a Warren presidency she’d make sure the squad was respected.

Let’s be clear about what this vile comment is: A racist and xenophobic attack on Democratic congresswomen. This *is* their country, regardless of whether or not Trump realizes it. They should be treated with respect. As president, I’ll make sure of it.

BLM’s Shaun King similarly called Trump’s tweet “racist.”

However, many responded to Warren defending President Trump.
