A Republican lawmaker said Thursday he was "disgusted" by a chant he heard at a rally for President Donald Trump, saying the nation's Founding Fathers would be equally as appalled.

At a rally Wednesday night, some members of a rally crowd in Greensboro, North Carolina chanted "Send her back!" in regards to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., a frequent Trump critic who Trump has taken several shots at in recent days.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., tweeted: "I deeply disagree with the extreme left & have been disgusted by their tone. I woke up today equally disgusted - chants like 'send her back' are ugly, wrong, & would send chills down the spines of our Founding Fathers. This ugliness must end, or we risk our great union."

Last weekend, Trump suggested that Omar and three other Democratic critics of his should "go back" to their countries of heritage, fix the problems there, and then return to the U.S. The comments have been labeled as racist, although Trump insists race had nothing to do with his remarks.
