Donald Trump claims that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the 'new face of the Democratic party', along with fellow progressive Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar, for their influence in trying to turn the party against Israel.
The president slammed House Democrats on Sunday for wanting to take action against Israel after the nation banned Tlaib and Omar from entering the country for an official visit on Thursday, saying the four, known as 'the Squad' are taking over the party.
'House Democrats want to take action against Israel because it is fighting back against two (maybe four) people that have said unthinkably bad things about it & the Israeli people,' he tweeted Sunday evening.
'Dems have such disdain for Israel! What happened? AOC Plus 4 is the new face of the Democrat Party!' he added.

The Squad of four are known for being in allies in their politics and decrying the Trump administration.
Tlaib and Omar have been in the forefront of politics this week after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government banned Tlaib and Omar from entering the country following their outspoken support of Palestine and the BDS movement.
Israel's ban against allowing Representatives Tlaib, of Michigan, and Ilhan, of Minnesota, into the country sparked controversy as both Muslim and have both supported boycotts of Israel.
On Friday Trump insinuated that AOC was jealous of the media attention Tlaib and Ilhan were receding in light of Israel's ban.
'Like it or not, Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party. Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this!'
But AOC brushed off his tweet with a laughing emoji.
