President Donald Trump Monday added more salvos to his Twitter attacks apparently aimed at four freshmen members of Congress, calling for them to apologize for their "foul language" and "terrible things they have said" a day after telling them to "go back" to the countries they "originally came from."
"When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said," Trump tweeted. "So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!"
He followed up by saying, "if Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S."
While not listing them by name, the tweets were apparently aimed at Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.; Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.; and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Ocasio-Cortez was born in New York, Tlaib in Detroit, and Pressley in Cincinnati. Omar was born in Somalia and is a naturalized United States citizen.
The president added the messages while continuing to double down to critics saying a series of early morning tweets posted Sunday were racist, after he said the congresswomen "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all)," and said they should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."
