President Donald Trump and the Trump campaign attempted to counter the four Democratic women lawmakers of color known as “The Squad” with a group of mostly white women the campaign dubs the “Real Squad”, which resulted in immediate backlash and humiliation.
“The Squad” includes Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), whom Trump targeted in a racist tweet last week telling them to go back to the countries they came from even though all are American citizens and three of the four were born right here in the United States.
Trump has since doubled down on his racist attacks against the four women, and now members of his campaign are desperately trying to steal the “Squad” brand as their own, all while featuring white women as the majority with four token women of color.
Meet ‘The REAL Squad’.
We are #WomenForTrump.
And Democrats can NEVER tell us otherwise.

Yeah, that didn’t go down very well.
As a woman, please allow me to just say NO.

Imagine, women who are ok with a man sleeping with a porn star while his wife is at home with their newborn.

How much self-loathing does it take to be a “Woman for Trump”?
Asking for a friend.

Trump and his campaign’s attempt to co-opt “The Squad” moniker for “Women for Trump” smacks of desperation and is pathetic.
