Republican Congressman and Gubernatorial Candidate Ralph Abraham has doubled down on President's statements about four progressive Democrat congresswomen.  

Both men were referring to freshmen U.S. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, who call themselves the 'Squad'.  

On Monday President Trump re-itierated that if the lawmakers are “...not happy in the U.S., if you’re complaining all the time, you can leave, you can leave right now.”

Taking his cue from President Trump's statements Abraham doubled down, tweeting: "There’s no question that the members of Congress that DonaldTrump called out have absolutely said anti-American and anti-Semitic things. I’ll pay for their tickets out of this country if they just tell me where they’d rather be."

Not to be outdone, Abraham's Republican challenger for governor Eddie Rispone, responded with his own tweet: "If these American hating crazies in Washington don't like it, they should crawl back under the rock they came from."
