The "Squad" denounces Trump's attacks as an intentional "distraction"
In an extraordinary rebuke, the House voted to condemn President Trump's attacks against four congresswomen of color as "racist." The measure, which passed mostly along party lines Tuesday night, exposed deep partisan rifts. Only four Republicans voted in favor.
In a Cabinet meeting earlier Tuesday, the president again defended his original tweet telling the progressive lawmakers to "go back" where they came from. The four freshmen lawmakers apparently targeted by the president are Rashid Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley. Together they are known as the "Squad." They sat down with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King Tuesday on Capitol Hill for their only joint interview, where they shared what it's like to feud with the most powerful politician in the country.
