Only one of four lawmakers ,the president attacked, Rep. Omar of Minnesota, is foreign born
The President didn’t use any names, but refers to “Progressive Democrat Congresswomen” in his tweet, an obvious reference to popular progressive democratic lawmakers Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar.
Trump says "Why don't they go back".
Rep. Rashida Tlaib Reacts to Trump's Tweet:
Rep. Ayanna Pressley responds on Twitter
Omar quotes James Baldwin in responding to Trump
AOC strikes back:
The freshman congresswomen responded back to Trump by saying " Mr. President, the country I ‘come from,’ and the country we all swear to, is the United States,” .
Behind The Tweet:
Trump's comments come within the shadow of a series of ICE raids happening across the nation targeting undocumented immigrants for deportation.
