Trump was accused this week by many Democrats and some Republicans of racism after suggesting in a tweet that the four Democratic congresswomen “go back” to the “totally broken” and “crime infested places” they came from. Although Trump did not name any lawmaker specifically in the tweets, he has since referenced first-term Reps.

During the rally in North Carolina, many Twitter users also noted the crowd chanting “send her back” when Trump criticized Omar of anti-Semitism. Omar, who came to the United States as a refugee from Somalia, is a U.S. citizen.

Trump has denied that his initial tweets about the Democratic congresswomen were racist, tweeting on Tuesday that he does not “have a Racist bone in my body.”

Trump also criticized Ocasio-Cortez during the Wednesday rally, saying he didn’t “have time” to say her three names. Ocasio-Cortez called the migrant detention centers on the border run by the Trump administration concentration camps last month.

This is not the first time the dictionary has weighed in on Trump's tweets. The account has mocked Trump's misspellings in his tweets and added political definitions of words like "snowflake."
