House Democrats expressed frustration with “the Squad” after voting Wednesday to defend them from President Trump, saying they played right into Trump’s hands and don’t deserve that kind of support from House leaders they’ve criticized.

“Many are extremely frustrated,” CNN’s Jake Tapper reported in a Twitter thread Wednesday, based on conversations he had with Democrats on the Hill. They’re not as unified as their votes this week indicate, he said.

The article goes on to state the following:

One House Democrat told Tapper the showdown between the White House and “the Squad” served Trump’s interests. “The president won this one,” the unnamed Democrat said. “What the president has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them.”

The full text of Tapper’s thread may be read below:

House Democrats appeared unified in their votes this week but I’ve spent the day talking to a bunch of them and many are extremely frustrated. All agree POTUS’s tweets needed to be condemned; they spoke under condition of anonymity so they could be candid. (Thread)

2/ “The president won this one,” said House Dem 1 of the Trump v Squad (AOC, Tlaib, Omar & Pressley) showdown. “What the president has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them.”

3/ Another issue: what are Dems focused on? Is it what will help the class of 2018 (largely more moderate than the Squad) get reelected? Dem Rep 2: “The president’s words and actions speak for themselves. We need to focus on the issues that got them here: jobs, health care…”

4/ “…instead of the issues the president brings up deliberately. Anything that takes away from bread and butter issues is playing into his hands.”

5/ Other House Democrats are conflicted about having to defend the Squad given things they’ve said and done. House Dems cited: talk of supporting challengers to incumbent Dems in primaries, AOC’s use of the term “concentration camps,” anti-Semitic comments by Tlaib & Omar.

6/ This perceived selective outrage rankled some Dems. “Everybody was completely outraged by what the president said,” said House Dem 3, “and everybody thought it was appropriate to criticize him…

7/ “…but this was the *first* time the House has taken action to criticize him in any way, We couldn’t even bring ourselves to have a resolution exclusively condemning anti-Semitism uttered by one of those members” — Omar — “but we leapt to their defense here.”

8/ A few House Dems noted that Omar and Tlaib just introduced a resolution affirming the right of Americans to boycott, perceived as an expression of support for the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divest, and sanction) movement that most House Dems oppose.

9/ “So we’ll hear a tirade of attacks on Israel from the same group,” said House Dem 3. “Hopefully they won’t be anti Semitic.” House Dem 4 also brought up that bill coming “from someone with a history of anti-Semitism” — Omar — “So yeah it’s challenging.”

10/ House Dem 4 recalls that “less than 2 weeks ago when members of our caucus were trying to support funds for children at the border,” the Squad was arguing that “we’re pro-putting kids in cages, we’re against human rights. So there’s frustration.”

11/ Others noted that this week the House Democratic Caucus stood by a group that is not perceived as standing by them. “I can’t tell you the number of Members who are angry and annoyed about them criticizing us,” said House Dem 3.

12/ AOC, in particular “gives her chief of staff license to get candidates to run against her colleagues and to go after them on social media. It makes people’s skin crawl,” said House Dem 3. House Dem 4 summed it up: “We were there for them; they should stop attacking us.”

Show your support for President Trump!

    “ you were there for them, so they should stop attacking you”, but they won’t. AOC and her Commie Squad are some kind of special.

    I take issues with those democrats that speak anonymously about the so called squad of 4, this means that most democrats are silenced because they are afraid to speak up, speak directly out on the behaviors of these 4 women. This needed to be addressed, in fact Nancy should have but she only supported their behaviors like they we children acting out and dont know what they are saying, which is crap! Each one of these ladies somehow made in to the house. So it seems they know better! Nobody I know bought into the excuses these young girls received from Nancy and democrats that babied them! Pointing out the President bringing to the light on the hatred spreading, the racism batting and total disregard for the offices they each hold is disgraceful and unruly. The president was spot on! He was not racist in his remarks. So in this case, I say who better then the President to call them out. These women just want attention and are going about it in a disrespectful way.

    Funny how one of the concerns is their chances for re-election. How about being concerned about what is going on in the country, and the border. Be concerned about health care, and not for illegals.
