President Trump tore into an unnamed member of Congress on Sunday, urging her to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

He was undoubtedly talking about Rep. Ilhan Omar, an immigrant from Somalia.

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who 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), now loudly,” Trump wrote in one tweet, adding, “and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” in another.

Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!” he wrote.

Trump’s tweets came on the heels of Omar questioning the patriotism of American-born citizens during a session at the NetRoots conference.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) on Saturday questioned the patriotism of American-born citizens, claiming she “probably love[s] this country more than anyone who is naturally born” in the United States.

Omar participated in a foreign policy panel at the liberal Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia when she made her comment. Omar began her remarks by making light of her past anti-Semitic comments and the backlash that has resulted from them.


“Something that I get criticized for all the time. It’s not what you think, so don’t gasp,” Omar said.

“It is that I am anti-American because I criticize the United States,” she said. “I believe, as an immigrant, I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born and because I am ashamed of it continuing to live in its hypocrisy.”

On Sunday, Hillary Clinton entered the fray.

“They’re from America,” she tweeted, “and you’re right about one thing: Currently their government is a complete and total catastrophe.”
