President Donald Trump on Sunday criticized a group of non-white Democratic congresswomen in tweets and said they should leave the USA and go back to the countries "from which they came". In tweets Sunday, President Donald Trump portrays the lawmakers as foreign-born troublemakers who should go back to their home countries.
He added: "These places need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough".
"I have worked with Nancy Pelosi in Congress, and I have clashed with Nancy Pelosi as White House chief of staff", Emanuel said in a statement.
Three of the four women Trump was apparently referencing were born in the USA; none are white. - Rep. Justin Amash of MI, a Trump critic who announced this month he was leaving the Republican Party to become an independent. Although Trump did not mention any specific names, many saw him as clearly signaling out progressive Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ayanna Pressley of MA and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.
Lujan, assistant Speaker and a member of the Hispanic Caucus in the House, became emotional on "Fox News Sunday" when shown Trump's tweet.
Kim Darroch, the former United Kingdom ambassador to the United States, reportedly alleged that President Trump withdrew from the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal in 2018 for "personality reasons".

"THIS is what racism looks like", Pressley posted to Twitter, sharing screenshots of the president's tweets. Omar's family fled Somalia when she was a child, during civil war; she was a teenager when she became a United States citizen.

Trump's comments echo the bigoted shouts that minorities hear daily to "go back where you came from", said Nihad Awad, national executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "We've got to heal the pain of the working class of this country, ' and that is causing some political disruption within the leadership of the Democratic Party", Mr. Sanders said. Instead, Democrats united in denouncing the comments, which evoked the old racist trope of telling a black person to go back to Africa.
All four would probably argue that they ran for office in the first place so they could work to improve the lives of people where each of them are from.
Ms Pressley, the first black woman elected to the House from MA, was born in Cincinnati.
