Leave the US, Trump tells Democratic congresswomen of colour

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Donald Trump Nancy Pelosi

He would go on to delete the tweet, but he doubled down on his message and said, "I don't think people have to be personally racist to enable a racist system". Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley - in his earlier tweets.

Case in point: On Sunday (July 14), Donald Trump, upset with four freshman Democratic Congresswomen, took to Twitter to tell the women of color to "go back" to the countries that they came from.

Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Pressley are natural-born U.S. citizens, while Omar was born in Somalia and immigrated to the United States when she was young.

Ms Pressley, the first black woman elected to the House from MA, was born in Cincinnati. Pelosi told The New York Times that "they're four people, and that's how many votes they got", a remark that brought criticism that Pelosi was marginalizing women of color.

Pelosi demeaned Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tliab and Pressley's social media followings, claiming that did not translate to actual action.

Pelosi has cast the sniping among House Democrats as a threat to achieving common goals, one of them to defeat Trump's bid for reelection.

However, Amash was sharply criticized by a voter in May during a town hall event in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for "demonizing" President Trump.

Trump did not say whom he was referring to but said they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world".


"Mr. President, the country I 'come from, ' and the country we all swear to, is the United States", Ocasio-Cortez, like Trump a native of New York City, responded on Twitter.

"Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came".

Such countries, he added, "need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough". All have emerged as prominent opponents of the Trump administration and key voices in a Democratic party increasingly split over the best way to beat the president next year.

Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said on Sunday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is being a "little bit" too hard on progressive House Democrats such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"You don't expect to hear it from the president of the United States", de Blasio, a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.

Democrats have argued the policy will lead to the separation of families, and undocumented immigrants who have jobs and U.S. children being swept up.

Pressley is the first African American woman elected to Congress to represent MA.
