DONALD Trump said he "felt badly" about supporters chanting "send her back" about a Somali-born Congresswoman during a rally.

President Trump started tweeting Friday morning, criticizing the media for covering quote "a tiny staged crowd as they greeted foul mouthed Omar in Minnesota".

Omar responded on Twitter, on one account saying, "Together we are fighting for a vision of America where its promise is alive for all who seek it".

"And I had to sit in Trump's audience, one of a handful of people of colour and then listen to that speech, and all that I had sort of held onto for eight years, watching my husband get raked over the coals, feeling like we had to do everything perfectly, you know, no scandal". "And again, we have First Amendment rights also". He defended his remarks directed toward Representatives Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of MA and Rashida Tlaib of MI in which he told the four women to "go back" to where they came from if they don't like the US.

Referring to the president's "go back" tweet, Ocasio-Cortez said his "biggest mistake was that he said the quiet part aloud - that was his biggest mistake". "Those are incredible patriots", Mr Trump told reporters outside the White House when asked about the chants.

His comments came just days after he attacked Omar and three other minority congresswomen - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley - in a series of racist tweets in which he told the four women to go back to where they came from. I would say that I was not happy with it.

Manny Pacquiao defeats Keith Thurman by split decision
Both fighters started quickly with a series of good-looking exchanges, but Pacquiao changed the bout in an instant. Two judges scored it 115-112 in favour of Pacquiao with the third scoring it 114-113 in favour of Thurman.

Three of the women were born in the U.S. and one, Ms Omar, was born in Somalia and came to the United States as a child.

In a tweet Saturday, the president posted a video form the event when the chant broke out. I disagree with [the chants], by the way.

Ms Omar is one of the first two Muslim women ever elected to the USA congress, which is an important part of the government.

Omar was defiant Thursday, telling reporters at the Capitol that she believes the president is a "fascist" and casting the confrontation as a fight over "what this country truly should be".

Trump complained. Trump walked back from the racist tinderbox he ignited after reportedly consulting his inner circle, including his wife Melania Trump and daughter Ivanka Trump. "We're not going anywhere", she added.
