A vote rebuking Trump for targeting the so-called “Squad”— a group of liberal freshmen that includes Reps. Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) – could unify a Democratic caucus that has been engaged an outright civil war in recent days.
