Trump disavows 'send her back' cry, Omar stands defiant

Cardi B quotes Beyoncé in Instagram post supporting Rep. Ilhan Omar

-Mexican border. Omar, along with the three others Trump denigrated - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayana Pressley of MA and Rashida Tlaib of MI - wanted more compassionate control over government actions, and they voted against most Democrats.

All four are American citizens. I started speaking very quickly.

Democrats are highlighting the need to defeat Trump next year, but the party is experiencing friction as candidates position themselves in a crowded field.

Now Omar has become one of Trump's fiercest critics, regularly attacking his immigrant detention policies at the southern USA border with Mexico as immoral and assailing the country's long-standing support and alliance with Israel, which she says comes at the expense of Palestinians living alongside the Israelis. "And I think this really horrendous narrative that says, as a Muslim, I'm supposed to explain, apologise, for the actions of someone who's also terrorising me, is absurd".

Omar swiftly rebuffed Trump, saying, "We have said this president is racist".

"I deeply disagree with the extreme left & have been disgusted by their tone", said Representative Adam Kinzinger of IL.

President Donald Trump dismissed reports of crowds greeting Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar at the airport as she returned to her home state of Minnesota, calling it "staged".

Trump said Omar in particular is "lucky to be where she is, let me tell you, and the things that she has said are a disgrace to our country".

Candidates in the centrist lanes are warning that drifting too far leftward will alienate moderate voters and make it more hard to oust Trump in 2020.

Aside from drawing Trump's attention and his ire, the outspoken Omar has in six-plus months in Congress often rankled her Democratic colleagues, a number of them Jewish and more broadly, regardless of their religion, longtime supporters of Israel.

Donald Trump has started his campaign trail as he looks to be elected for a second term as US President in the White House.

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of IL tweeted that it was "ugly, wrong, & would send chills down the spines of our Founding Fathers. This ugliness must end, or we risk our great union".

Walker, who called the chant "offensive", was among about 10 House GOP leaders who had breakfast Thursday with Vice President Mike Pence at Pence's residence in Washington.

Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world. Trump disavowed the chants, saying he was "not happy" with them. "If the Democrats want to embrace people that hate our country ... it's up to them". "This president said he didn't see any problem in having a foreign, hostile government [Russia] intervene in our elections".

His criticism of Omar included a false accusation that she has voiced pride in al-Qaida.

As Trump exploits the divides and appeals to his conservative, largely white base, race remains a flashpoint for Democrats.

Underscoring the rocky period, House chaplain Pat Conroy's opening prayer Thursday began, "This has been a hard and contentious week in which darker spirits seem to have been at play in the people's house". I believe that it is one of the most absurd alliedships; it doesn't fit with any of our values.
