Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reminds Trump, 'I come from ... the United States'

"They're from America", Clinton wrote about three of the freshman Democrats - Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley - who Trump told to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came".

The four congresswomen Trump is referring to - Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) - are all American citizens.

The women were all born in the United States, except for Omar, who became a refugee at age 10 when a brutal civil war devastated Somalia, a predominantly Muslim country in East Africa.

"Trump didn't name the lawmakers but said he was referring to "'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen".

Shortly after the tweets, and a later presidential post defending the harsh scenes at a border detention facility where hundreds of migrant men are being held in sweltering, foul-smelling conditions, Trump left the White House to go golfing at his Virginia club.

Pelosi, on Sunday, responded to Trump's tweets and defended the other Democrats. Trump finally conceded in September 2016 that Obama was born in the United States.

That's why it's no surprise that on Sunday, following a string of racist tweets from President Donald Trump, Kerr was quick to speak out on social media. Though Trump's insults and jibes often elicit a negative response, commentators took particular issue with his latest outburst, pointing out that America has been a home to immigrants since the country's founding.

"Mr. President, the country I 'come from, ' & the country we all swear to, is the United States". The Chairman of the house of representatives - the front woman of the Democrats, Nancy Pelosi - was certainly ready and willing to assist with the travel plans, after pushing Trump.

Just Go Back, Trump Tells 4 Citizen-Lawmakers of Color
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was born in Somalia and came to the USA in the 1990s. "Hell no", Ocasio-Cortez said at the time. Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) made those comments during a speech at the liberal Netroots Nation conference where she, Rep.

Trump has said he believes he has the legal right to attack Iran.

Trump's decision to highlight the simmering tension inside the Democratic caucus appeared to have one clear effect: uniting the party in defense of thefour freshman lawmakers. These are American citizens elected by voters in the United States of America to serve in one of the most distinguished bodies in the U.S. House of Representatives.

He said that at the time he thought that it was just kids, but then wrote on Twitter that "I got to high school and thought that would change".

"Their disgusting language and the many bad things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged", he tweeted.

Host Jake Tapper later asked Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, whether he knew whom the president was talking about in his tweets.

The group is largely critical of Trump and his policies.

"Racism and xenophobia have no place in America", tweeted former vice president Joe Biden, the frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic nomination.
