President Trump on Friday mocked what he described as a "staged" greeting for "Foul Mouthed" Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., in her home district - blasting the coverage and accusing the media of forging a "sick partnership" with the freshman congresswoman and her allies.

"And if racism ever becomes a partisan issue in this country, we have done a woeful disservice to our founders. They did and I disagreed with it", he said.

One day after supporters of President Donald Trump chanted "send her back", Rep. Ilhan Omar was greeted on Thursday by dozens at a Minnesota airport with chants of "welcome home".

"I am where I belong, at the people's house and you're just gonna have to deal!"

"We care about her, we love her and she is representing our voice at the capitol", said State Rep. Mohamud Noor, in a phone interview with theGrio from Minnesota.

Trump's victory in 2016 was spurred by strong support from white working-class voters.

Omar, the biggest target of online vitriol among the four legislators, has made comments that raise eyebrows, including a remark this spring in which she referenced the September 11 attacks by saying that "some people did something". She's a fierce Trump critic.

The trailer for the Top Gun sequel is finally here
Basically get your memberberries out because you're going to be "membering" a whole bunch of stuff from the first film. Lets hope that this new Top Gun movie is as good as the original one, it will be released in movie theaters next year.

The women, informally known as "The Squad", have been critical of Donald Trump's harsh immigration policies. "But (the spirit is) pointing out the outrageous assault on humanity that's going on within our own borders".

"They said, 'Send her back, ' they didn't know I was already going back to have a lovely conversation about what it means to create progress for all of the people in our country", said Omar. "Absolutely. You have to". "Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party are bungling their response to Trump's racist and xenophobic tweets, but, like I said, the Democratic Party and Nancy Pelosi have been bungling their whole relationship with these four congresswomen and other members of the Progressive Caucus within their party".

Republicans, too, are grappling with the racial debate that could have profound long-term consequences on the GOP's ability to win elections in an increasingly diverse nation.

For her part, Rep. Omar has shown grace under fire after Trump supporters chanted "send her back" during his campaign rally in North Carolina on Wednesday.

Publicly, however, the overwhelming majority of Republican elected officials stood behind the president or offered tepid criticism.

To prove it, Meyers put up a graphic showing a photo of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that made it appear as though his face was melting into a puddle of chins, and another of Sen.

"We ought to tone the rhetoric down across the country using - throwing around words like racism, you know, kind of routinely applying it to nearly everything", he told Fox Business Network.
