Biden raps Trump for response to 'send her back' chants

  • Rep. Ilhan Omar responded to President Trump writing on Twitter that they are going to

"She's lucky to be where she is, let me tell you, and the things that she has said are a disgrace to our country".

Republicans have been notably quiet about the row, which was sparked when Mr Trump tweeted a week ago that Ms Omar and three progressive Democratic colleagues, known as The Squad, should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came".

Omar received a very different reception when she returned home to Minnesota Thursday night and was greeted by crowds of supporters at the airport.

Trump, talking to reporters on the White House South Lawn prior to a weekend visit to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, agreed that the four have a constitutionally protected freedom of speech, but that he has the right to respond.

Asked about the chants by the participants at Wednesday's North Carolina rally, Trump said: "Those are incredible people".

"I don't know if it's good or bad politically, I don't care", he said. Nearly every news outlet called out his lies, pointing to footage where Trump basked for 13 long seconds as his racist followers chanted "Send her back!"

"A vote for any Democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American Dream - frankly the destruction of our country", Trump said. We are not deterred. Trump's allies distanced themselves from the chant, fretting over the voters it might turn off in next year's election and beyond. The following day he told reporters he disagreed with the sentiment.

Trump's double flip-flop was reminiscent of his response to the violent clash between white supremacists and anti-racist demonstrators in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017.

Three of the four Congresswomen were born in the U.S, and the fourth, Ilhan Omar, a Somalia-born refugee, is a naturalized American citizen, and all of them have been critical of the Trump administration's policies - not of the USA itself.

The chants at the Trump rally brought criticism from GOP lawmakers as well as from Democrats, though the Republicans did not fault Trump himself.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California declared that the chant has "no place in our party and no place in this country".

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of IL tweeted that it was "ugly, wrong, & would send chills down the spines of our Founding Fathers".

To the delight of his thousands of supporters in Greenville, Trump described Omar and the other three as "left-wing ideologues (who) see our nation as a force of evil". "This ugliness must end, or we risk our great union", Representative Adam Kinzinger wrote in a tweet.

Trump also did not specify what "statements" of theirs he was referring to.

Mr Trump said on Thursday that he was "not happy with" the chant, yet during the rally, he paused and looked around at the crowd during the shouting, making no attempt to stop it. Democrats had hoped the spotlight Thursday would be on House passage of legislation to boost the minimum wage for the first time in a decade.
