"They're from America, and you're right about one thing: Currently their government is a complete and total catastrophe," Clinton tweeted.

As Clinton pointed out, Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley were all born in the U.S.

Omar was born in Mogadishu, Somalia. Her family fled the war-torn nation, initially finding refuge in Kenya before migrating to the U.S. as refugees in the early 1990s.  

Trump's attack on the first-year lawmakers has been met with universal pushback from the Democratic Party.
