President Donald Trump continued his attacks against the “squad” of leftist Democrats in Congress on Monday, describing the group as “very racist.”

Trump’s latest attack continues the second week of criticism focused on Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
