Donald Trump's poll numbers are now lower than those of AOC. Ilhan Omar can't help but laugh.
President Donald Trump's approval rating is now lower than all four members of " The Squad," otherwise known as the four democratic congresswomen of color Trump has been attacking as of late.
His net approval rating is -11 according to the new Economist/YouGov poll. When you compare that to The Squad - which Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, they're all above that. Of course they are, it's not too hard to beat those numbers.
Rep. Ilhan Omar saw the poll online and couldn't help but get the last laugh, saying she was sending her "condolences" to President Trump.
What's important to note about the poll, while it's not uncommon for Trump to poll so negatively with Democrats, The Squad also had better approval ratings than Trump among independents. Trump will need to win over this group if he seeks to win re-election.
While Trump has not condemned his supporters for the now infamous "Send Her Back chants" at his rally last month, he did say before his rally on Thursday night that he would prefer they avoid the chant. That's probably because Trump realizes it's not helping him as much in the polls as he thought it would.
In another swipe to Trump, Rep.Ilhan Omar went back to her native home of Somali, but she also brought with her Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The two made the trip together to make a statement.
"So grateful for the honor to return to Mother Africa with the @TheBlackCaucus and commemorate The Year of Return!"
The photos show her and Pelosi walking through the Door of No Return, a memorial to the slave trade in Ghana.
Rep. Omar fled the war-torn Somalia as a child and many thought it was offensive when Trump suggested we send her back, when she's an American citizen who came here many years ago.
It looks like she's getting the last laugh on this one.
