WASHINGTON DC - U.S. President Donald Trump contended Sunday that four minority Democratic congresswomen he has been feuding with are not "capable of loving our Country."
"They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said," Trump said on Twitter. "They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!"
For days now, Trump has assailed Congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayana Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, first telling them they should "go back" to their countries and "fix things" in their homelands before telling the U.S. what it ought to do. All of them are U.S. citizens, three of them by birth and Somali refugee Omar by naturalization.

Democrats and some Republicans have sharply criticized Trump's week-old remarks and the U.S. House of Representatives condemned them as "racist," but the U.S. leader has continued to assail the four women, all newcomers to Congress in January.
In turn, the lawmakers have attacked him, with Omar saying, "I believe he is fascist."
The ongoing verbal warfare reverberated on the Sunday news talk television shows.
