Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) quickly condemned President Trump after his comments in the wake of the U.S. attack that killed the Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.
President Trump threatened 52 possible targets in and around Iran.
Some of those targets included what he called “cultural sites.”
The two members of the “squad” accused President Trump of “war crimes.”
Ocasio-Cortez and Omar failed to condemn Iran or the slain Iranian General Soleimani.
More from The Daily Wire:
On Saturday, President Donald Trump addressed a response to Iranian threats against American military sites abroad, warning that the U.S. government had compiled a list of approximately 52 potential targets for a response attack — a callback to the 52 American hostages taken by Iran back in the late 1970s.
“Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian site (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago),” President Trump tweeted.

“Some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets. and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!”
Trump did not list specific targets, so it is not clear what he means by “important to Iran and Iranian culture.”
That didn’t stop Ocasio-Cortez, of course, from immediately accusing the president of plotting “war crimes.”
“This is a war crime,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children — which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites — does not make you a ‘tough guy.’ It does not make you ‘strategic.’

It makes you a monster.”
Omar was not far behind, also accusing Trump of “war crimes.”
