If “lock her up” was the definitive chant at Donald Trump’s rallies in the 2016 campaign, the 2020 race might have a new – and ugly – counterpart. The crowd at the President’s campaign rally in North Carolina on 18 July 2019 repeatedly shouted, “Send her back!” after Trump mentioned US Rep. Ilhan Omar. The President spent a big chunk of the rally going after Omar and the three other congresswomen of color known as “the squad.” They’ve blasted the Trump administration over its handling of migrants in detention centers on the US-Mexico border. Trump said if they don’t like the policies, they can leave the country. And when the chant started, he made no effort to stop it.
