Three of the women of the Squad - Ocasio-Cortez, Representative Rashida Tlaib of MI, and Representative Ayanna Pressley of MA - were born in the U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota was born in Somalia and immigrated as a child.

President Donald Trump is unshaken by the accusations of "racism" he faces amid a feud with the Democratic Party's 'Squad, ' slamming them for being "hateful" and demanding an apology to the USA - and Israel.

The Democratic politician spoke in NY for the first time since President Trump again criticised her and three other minority Democratic congresswomen on Friday for saying what he called "horrible things" about the US.

"I have an advantage of knowing the president very well, and he's not a racist and his comments are not racist", Ben Carson said on America's Newsroom, as noted by Fox News.

"I heard the same kind of chant, 'Go home, you don't belong here.' And they called us the N-word over and over and over again", Cummings told ABC's This Week. The next day, however, President Trump said he disagreed with the chant.

Mrs. Obama tweeted on Friday: "What truly makes our country great is its diversity".

The chants were directed at Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who came to the U.S. from Somalia as refugee aged 12.

Mr Biden likened Mr Trump to former Alabama governor George Wallace, the last major presidential candidate known for embracing openly racist rhetoric on the campaign trail, and called for Mr Trump to "outright condemn" racists.

But Trump doubled down on the comments throughout the week and his supporters then chanted "send her back" repeatedly as the president paused to let them carry out the chant during a North Carolina rally. The only thing people were talking about is the record setting crowd and the tremendous enthusiasm, far greater than the Democrats.

Last week, Trump urged the four to go back to the "totally broken and crime infested places from which they came", sparking a massive backlash and accusations of racism from the Democrats.

"Then come back and show us how it is done", the president added.

'These places need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough. All are women of color and three of the four were born in the U.S.as American citizens.

"I don't know if it's good or bad politically, I don't care", he said.

"We're going to stay right here, that's where we're going to go", Ms Ocasio-Cortez shared her response to President Trump's suggestion that American citizens "go back" with constituents at a Queens town hall on immigration issues.

When a reporter asked her whether she believed Trump had led the crowd on, Ocasio-Cortez replied: "He absolutely did".
