Four Congresswomen who are far-left held a press conference addressing President Trump’s tweets that were directed at them which they not surprisingly claimed were racist.
The press conference featured Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).
During the press conference, they made multiple false statements and refused to answer certain questions.
One of the more concerning moments was when Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) refused to deny she was a communist and condemn al-Qaeda.

According to The Daily Wire:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN): “This is a president whose called black athletes sons-a-bitches. This is a president that called people who come from black and brown countries ‘shitholes.’ This is a president who has equated neo-Nazis with those who protest them”

Omar made multiple false claims during the press conference, saying: “This is a president who has called black athletes ‘sons of b*****s.’ This is a president who has called people who come from black and brown countries ‘sh–holes.’ This is a president who has equated neo-Nazis with those who protest them.”
None of what Omar claimed is true. Trump referred to athletes who kneel during the national anthem as “sons-of-b*****s,” not black athletes. Trump referred to certain countries as “sh-tholes,” not black and brown people. Trump did not equate neo-Nazis with those who protest them, he specifically condemned them.
Omar went on to claim that Trump was accused of criminally colluding with Russia to undermine the U.S. election, despite the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller stated in his report on his Russia investigation that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia.
Omar also spread conspiracy theories, claiming without evidence that Trump was trying to promote “an agenda to allow millions of Americans to die from a lack of health care.”
Representative Pressley refused to refer to Trump as the president and instead categorized him as the occupant.
Ocasio-Cortez attacked Trump by claiming his attacks were because he couldn’t competently defend his policies.
