Trump under fire for racially-charged tweets against congresswomen
US President Donald Trump has been accused of racism after posting tweets attacking Democratic congresswomen.
He claimed the women "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe", before suggesting they "go back".
He then said Speaker Nancy Pelosi "would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements".
It comes a week after Ms Pelosi clashed with "the squad", a group of four left-wing Democratic women of colour, BBC reports.
Of the four congresswomen, three - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley - were born and raised in the US, while the fourth, Ilhan Omar, moved to the US as a child.
Ms Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx in New York, approximately 12 miles away from the Queens hospital where Mr Trump himself was born.
