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

Representative for Minnesota Ilhan Omar

President Donald Trump renewed his attacks against Rep.

"You know what I'm unhappy with?" 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! 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". Meanwhile, in the United States itself, Omar was accorded a rousing reception by her supporters chanting "Welcome back" and "We love you" at the Minneapolis airport as she returned to her constituency accompanied by Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, with whom the Somali-American is crafting healthcare legislation.

"This is about socialism versus freedom", top House Republican Kevin McCarthy told reporters this week.

"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".

At a breakfast event with more than three dozen black community leaders and restaurant workers at Dulan's in South Los Angeles on Thursday, Mr Biden condemned Mr Trump for appearing to bask in his supporters' "send her back" chants about Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar at a North Carolina rally on Wednesday night.

"We do not accept information that is going to change the trajectory of our elections, from hostile governments". We are not deterred.

The four women were targeted by the president in a controversial post on social media, in which he said they should "go back" to other countries.

"It's good to be home", she tweeted.

The back-and-forth captured the potential impacts of Trump's willingness to inject rhetoric that has been labelled racist into his re-election fight.

In a rare move, the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives on Tuesday rebuked Trump for "racist comments" after he said the four should "go back" to their countries of origin if they are not happy in the United States. We must remember it's not my America or your America. "This ugliness must end, or we risk our great union".

To many GOP ears, this time the attention wasn't all positive.

It was also the latest demonstration of how Trump's verbal cannonades are capable of dominating the news.

She told reporters that Trump "is fascist". 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. "I distance myself from this decidedly and stand in solidarity with the women who were attacked", Merkel said at her annual press conference in Berlin, adding that "US's strength lies exactly in the fact that people of very different nationalities contribute to the strength of the American people".

From the most liberal quarters to the centrists, Democrats circled the political wagons and trained their outrage on Trump for his bullying of a quartet of ethnic minority congresswomen whom he said should "go back" to other countries if they hate America.

The lawmakers attending agreed that the chant was inappropriate and could prove a harmful distraction, and Pence concurred and said he'd discuss it with Trump, said another participant who described the conversation on condition of anonymity.
