Trump tells Democratic congresswomen of color to leave US

"It doesn't concern me because many people agree with me, " Trump said at the White House.

The president also implied that because Omar, a naturalized citizen, came to the a refugee, she does not have the right to represent her adopted country.

Other than Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), an immigrant from Somalia, it's unclear who Trump had in mind, as few other Democratic Congresswomen are from other countries, and those that are are from countries considered stable such as India and Germany. Among Republicans, 42% said it has become more common and 22% said it has become more acceptable. In the speech, Reagan said if the U.S. According to the Reuters/Ipsos 2018 Election Day poll, 56% of suburban women voters in Pennsylvania disapproved of Trump's handling of the country, with 40% saying they approved.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern joined worldwide condemnation of Mr Trump's xenophobic tweets on Tuesday, saying she proudly celebrated her country's diversity.

Several hours after his remarks, the four - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of MA - hit back at a news conference.

"I don't think that the president's intent any way is racist", said Short, repeatedly pointing to Trump's decision to choose Elaine Chao, who was born outside the country, as his transportation secretary.

Facts First: Omar has not praised al Qaeda or said she can hold her "chest out" when thinking of al Qaeda.

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. They accuse people who support Israel of doing it for the Benjamins (money). "Why isn't the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said?"

"We don't leave the things that we love, and we love this country and that means we propose the solutions to fix it", Ocasio-Cortez said during Monday's press conference.

McCain reacted to the clip by pointing out that Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father and Muslim-American who stood up to Trump's Islamophobic rhetoric and criticism of his family during the 2016 presidential race, had a son who died in uniform and was not born in this country before taking one more jab at Graham.

Democrats rallied around the four congresswomen, which Trump indicated in a tweet later Monday might have been his goal.

Indonesia's meteorology agency (BMKG) recorded the quake at magnitude 7.2 and said it was not in danger of causing a tsunami . It had occurred at a depth of 10 kilometers with its epicenter located inland, North of Ternate city.

One Republican ally of Trump's, Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, piled on, calling the women "communists" and "anti-American" as he also sought to nudge the president to focus on their policies. His ideal America would be a brutal police state in which working people are deprived of all rights and the symbols of national "greatness" are a massive wall along the US-Mexico border and the Dow Jones Industrial Average-which he boasted Monday had hit a record 27,000. "They hate it, I think, with a passion".

Mr Trump has since defended his comments and denied allegations of racism.

Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Instead, the president's tweets, which evoked the trope of telling black people to go back to Africa, brought Democrats together.

Leading Democrats were quick to condemn the remarks as racist.

"Let's be clear about what this vile comment is: A racist and xenophobic attack on Democratic congresswomen", tweeted Sen. The longtime moderator warned Trump that his tweets were "very risky", particularly as he told "The Squad" - a group consisting of Democratic Reps.

Earlier this year, Omar said she received death threats after Trump spread around a video purporting to show her being dismissive of the 2001 terrorist attacks. "The more time we spend talking about offensive tweets from politicians, the less time we spend finding solutions", McAdams said. "I urge our President immediately disavow his comments", he wrote.

Omar, in particular, has been a frequent topic of critical coverage on Fox News, in part due to her frequent criticism of Israel and comments perceived as anti-Semitic.

In his campaign kickoff in June 2015, Trump deemed many Mexican immigrants "rapists".

When Trump said there were good people "on both sides" of a white supremacist neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville that resulted in the death of a protester, then-House Speaker Paul Ryan said Trump "messed up".

His effort comes just as the House prepares to hear from Mueller himself during two high-profile hearings scheduled for July 24 that many impeachment backers have suggested could reignite a stalled effort to seek Trump's ouster. "This needs to be condemned for what it is, which is virulent white supremacism from the commander in chief".
