Trump’s lashing out at the lawmakers, who are two Jewish men and four women of colour, as “Savages” inspired accusations of racism and anti-Semitism.
President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday morning to issue another pushback against Democratic lawmakers who had openly advocated for impeachment proceedings against him.
Trump called out by name the House Judiciary Committee’s chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, California Rep. Adam Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me,” Trump wrote. “Oh well, maybe next time!”
