Cover of Newsweek - Very Fine People




McAuliffe's book is disturbingly relevant given the recent tweets by President Donald Trump in which he told a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen of color—aka "The Squad"—to "go back" to their native countries. He was subsequently condemned by the House for "racist language." And a few days later, at a political rally in North Carolina, the frenzied crowd shouted "Send her back," referring to Representative Ilhan Omar.

We asked McAuliffe about the attacks on Omar and the Trump rally chants. His response: "He [Trump] is baiting us, and we should all stop talking about his racist taunts. Let's get back to healing and fixing our country."
