They are Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, all freshwomen in Congress.
Trump opened his flanks for attacks after a series of tweets telling the lawmakers to “go back” to their home countries to fix the problems there.
All the congresswomen are all U.S. citizens.
His defence on Twitter via four tweets came hours before the House was set to vote on a resolution condemning them as racist.
“Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!” Trump said.
Trump condemned the “so-called vote” on the resolution as a “Democrat con game,” sending a message to Republicans to vote against the measure, The Hill reported.
Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! The so-called vote to be taken is a Democrat con game. Republicans should not show “weakness” and fall into their trap. This should be a vote on the filthy language, statements and lies told by the Democrat…..
