Trump’s 2020 odds see no change after ‘racist’ tweets targeting ‘The Squad’

Twitter may be Donald Trump’s favorite political platform, but a series of tweets over the weekend has stirred up a lot of controversy for the US president.

On Sunday, Trump published a three-part tweet in reference to four Congresswoman that many are claiming to be racially charged.

So far, Trump’s chances of winning reelection have not changed since his tweets were posted. At this time, Bovada still has Trump at +100 odds to win the 2020 presidential election.

Known as “The Squad,” US Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib were the “Progressive Democrat Congresswomen” mentioned in Trump’s tweets.

Although he says the women should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came,” only Rep. Omar was born outside of the US before becoming a naturalized citizen in 2000.

Undeterred, the Congresswoman responded to the tweets Monday, saying that the president’s comments were just a distraction.

“No matter what the president says, this country belongs to everyone,” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez lamented.

All Democrat House members voted to condemn his language usage on Tuesday along with Republican representatives Will Hurd, Susan Brooks, Brian Fitzpatrick, and Fred Upton. The rest of the Republican party, 187 members, opposed the designation.

This is the first condemnation of a president since William Taft’s attempt to influence a Senate election in 1912.

Following the resolution’s passing, Texas Rep. Al Green filed the articles for impeachment against Trump.

The House will vote today to send the resolution to committee, to table it, or vote to continue with the proceedings.

Tuesday evening, Green detailed his reason for seeking impeachment: “President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimatized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color. Donald John Trump, by causing such harm to the society of the United States, is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial, and removal from office.”

If impeachment proceedings continue after today, keep a close eye on where the public money is placed since Trump’s odds begin to slip. Until then, the following are Bovada’s most recent presidential election odds.
