US President Donald Trump has attacked four female congressmen and Jewish lawmakers involved in preparations for his accountability, calling them "brutal Democrats."
At least 223 Democrats in the US House of Representatives support measures to hold the president accountable.
"Can you imagine what would happen if these barbaric democrats were among the lazy Democrats, people like Nadler, Chef, AOC Plus 3, and many more Republican Party doing to Obama what these zombies are doing to me? Well, maybe next time," Trump wrote on Saturday. ".
Jewish Rep. Gerold Nadler (New York) is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and Jewish Rep. Adam Schiff (California) chairs the Intelligence Committee, two important committees that play a role in Trump's accountability.
"AOC Plus 3" is a term referring to members of the House of Representatives, Alexandra Ocasio Cortez (New York), Ilhan Omar (Minnesota), Iana Presley (Massachusetts) and Rachida Tlaib (Michigan), a group of new congressional Democrats, known as the "band."
Last week, the US House of Representatives began proceedings to impeach Trump for impeachment after an anonymous congressman reported a complaint that the president had asked his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate former Vice President Joe Baden and his son Hunter in business dealings in Ukraine, coinciding with Trump's announcement of a freeze on military support for Ukraine.
"You see how he does it? More than 200 House Democrats have supported the removal, but the people he calls" savages "are Jews and four are women of color," The Washington Post's Dana Milbank wrote on Twitter.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto Uruk, a former Texas congressman, wrote that "when he describes six members of Congress who are all women of color or Jews as" savages, "he wants you to think of them as subhumans. He also describes immigrants as a "parasitic infection" and says "non-human" who want to live in Baltimore ... We cannot be surprised when violence follows.
