Trump tells four Democratic congresswomen to ‘go back’ to their countries


In the tweets, President Trump implied that the Congressmembers were not natural-born American citizens (three o the four presumed Congresswomen referred to were born in the United States). Trump did not name who he was attacking but earlier this week he referenced New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when the President was defending House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A group of Democrats, who are women of color and have been outspoken about Trump's immigration policies, last week condemned the conditions of border detention facilities. The group of women joining Ocasio-Cortez were Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.
