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

Trump earlier on Sunday said that "'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen" should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came" before criticizing policies in the U.S.

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.
