Donald Trump lashed out at four Democratic Congresswomen, Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and accused them of hating the United States in an unhinged rant on the White House lawn. Trump was responding to unrelenting criticism he has received after an earlier xenophobic Tweet in which he told the four Congresswomen to go back to the countries they came from, even though three of the four he attacked were born in the United States.

Quote | His appalling accusation came while defending a xenophobic Tweet he posted a day earlier.

"These are people [Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan] who in my opinion hate our country. They hate our country. They hate it, I think, with a passion."
