In a series of tweets sent Sunday morning, President Trump said progressive Democratic congresswomen should "go back" to "the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came," apparently referring to four lawmakers who are vocally opposed to his policies. He was seemingly talking about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.). Only Omar was born outside of the United States, arriving in the U.S. at age 12 as a Somali refugee. His remarks were condemned by several Democrats, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who said his comments were "racist," "xenophobic," and "vile," adding, "This is their country, regardless of whether or not Trump realizes it. They should be treated with respect."
