2020 Democrats react to 'send her back' chants at Trump rally
Democrats running for the White House in 2020 hammered President Trump Wednesday and Thursday after he went after four progressive congresswomen of color at a North Carolina rally.
Trump teed off on Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) at the event, and the presidential candidates focused much of their ire on chants of "send her back" that erupted during a diatribe against Omar, a naturalized U.S. citizen and refugee from Somalia.
"It's clear that Donald Trump is trying to divide us by race and gender. It's immoral. Our children are listening," former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted in a lengthy thread. "These members of Congress - children of immigrants, just like so many of us - are an example of exactly what makes America great."
