AOC calls Trump 'a monster' over threat to Iran; Omar, other Democrats warn of potential 'war crimes
Outspoken Democrats -- from far-left "Squad" members to 2020 presidential hopefuls -- wasted little time Saturday in denouncing President Trump's warning to Iran about possible retaliation for the U.S. airstrike that killed Iran's Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., answered by calling the president a “monster.”
“This is a war crime," Ocasio-Cortez wrote. "Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children -- which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites - does not make you a ‘tough guy,’ It does not make you ‘strategic.’ It makes you a monster.”
