THE CONTENTIOU­S SQUAD

-

THREE OF the four Democrat politician­s Mr Trump targeted are US-born and the fourth, Ilhan Omar, moved there aged ten. Dubbed ‘The Squad’, the four were elected last November and quickly built a reputation for sharp, progressiv­e rhetoric that took on the Washington establishm­ent, but not without controvers­y.

Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinia­n-American, has endorsed the Israel boycott movement BDS and believes in a one-state solution, while Ms Omar notoriousl­y suggested in February that US support for Israel was all about money.

She later apologised, saying she was now ‘learning’ about tropes.
