Merriam-Webster said "racism" was the top-searched term Wednesday night during and after a rally President Donald Trump held in Greenville, North Carolina.

"Tonight's top searches, in order: racism, socialism, fascism, concentration camp, xenophobia, bigot," the print and online dictionary tweeted.

Trump has come under intense fire from Democrats and Republicans over his tweets last weekend that are being called racist toward four freshmen Democratic members of Congress. Many have denounced the comments, while Trump says they were not meant to be racist.

"If people want to leave our country they can," Trump said Wednesday. "I do think I'm winning the political fight. I think I'm winning it by a lot."

Trump's controversial tweets included a line that suggested the four Democrats should "go back" to their countries of heritage, fix the problems there, and then return to the U.S.
