Trump rejects criticism that his weekend tweet about four minority lawmakers was racist, says they ‘hate our country’

President Trump said Monday that he is not concerned
by criticism that his tweets suggesting four minority congresswomen
return to their home countries were racist, asserting that they hate the
United States and are free to leave. His
comments at a White House event came as Democratic leaders in the House
prepared a resolution condemning tweets over the weekend in which Trump
said the liberal lawmakers critical of him should “go back and help fix
the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
