WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that four congresswomen of color should go back to what he calls the "broken and crime infested" countries they came from. That ignores the fact that all four of the women are American citizens and three were born in the U.S.
    
Trump tweets: "You can't leave fast enough."
    
Trump assails what he calls "'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe." He does not identify the women.
    
But he's unmistakably referring to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and her allies in what's become known as the squad. The others are Reps. Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib. Only Omar was foreign-born.

Trump's tweets prompted a wave of condemnation from Democrats, who set aside their rifts to speak as one in calling Trump's remarks racist.
    
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the president wants to "make America white again." Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, jousting for days with Pelosi, said Trump "can't conceive of an America that includes us."
    
Republicans have remained largely silent after Trump's morning broadsides against the four women.
