According to Business Insider, the president seemingly wants to exploit the infighting ahead of an election year. "The Squad" is Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. The battle between them and Pelosi is largely a battle for the future of the Democratic party.

The comments immediately drew fire Monday from Democrats. They charged the president was ignoring slavery. In a clip of the radio interview released by the SiriusXM show "Main Street Meets the Beltway," Trump said, "People don't realize, you know, the Civil War, if you think about it, why?"
