President TrumpDonald TrumpProsecutors focus Trump Organization probe on company's financial officer: report WHO official says it's 'premature' to think pandemic will be over by end of year Romney released from hospital after fall over the weekend MORE’s approval rating has dropped among minority voters after he told four Democratic lawmakers, all women of color, to "go back" to where they came from, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll released on Wednesday.

The survey, which was conducted from July 20-21, finds that 23 percent of Hispanic voters approve of Trump’s job performance, a 16-point decrease from a previous poll conducted between July 8 and 9.

The poll indicates that Trump’s approval is down to 13 percent among African American voters, marking a 5-point drop from two weeks ago. Trump’s approval rating has also dipped 3 points among Asian American voters, now standing at 57 percent.

HarrisX researchers surveyed 1,003 registered voters. The poll has an overall margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

Trump on Monday lashed out again at the four minority women, calling the group a “Racist group of troublemakers."

The tweet came a day after the president accused the lawmakers of being incapable of “loving our country." 

“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country," Trump tweeted. "They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said."

Trump has been facing a wave of backlash ever since he told the four lawmakers on July 14 that they should “go back” to where they came from, though all four women are U.S. citizens and three were born in the U.S. The president also came under fire after a crowd at one of his rallies started chanting “send her back” in reference to Omar, who came to the U.S. from Somalia as a refugee. 

The Democratic-led House passed a resolution condemning Trump's tweets as racist. The vote largely fell along partisan lines — just four Republicans voted in favor of it.

The four congresswomen have defended themselves in light of Trump's escalated attacks. In addition to holding a group press conference condemning Trump's remarks, the Squad's members of have also spoken out on their own. 

In an interview on Tuesday, Talib said Trump's attacks were intended “to distract us" from his policies, and said that he is "behind the scenes trying to change asylum laws."
