Remember the Twitter battle President Trump waged the other week with four Congressional Women? Now Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has entered the fray. The women are known as the “Squad” and are hyper-critical of America. Trump tweeted they should go back home and fix their own countries. Some dubbed it racist. Sen. Paul offered to buy Rep. Ilhan Omar a plane ticket to Somalia so she’ll ‘appreciate America more.’ Paul said, “I think she could look and maybe learn a little bit about the disaster that is Somalia, that has no capitalism, has no God-given rights guaranteed in a constitution and has about seven different tribes that have been fighting each other for about the last 40 years and maybe after she’s visited Somalia for a while, she might come back and appreciate America more.”
