The president's tweets come a day after he lashed out at “ 'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen,” saying the female lawmakers should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came" before attacking U.S. policies.

Trump’s tweets were widely condemned by Democratic lawmakers Sunday, with many calling the messages racist and pointing out that Omar, who is a U.S. citizen, was the only lawmaker of the group not born in the United States.

However, Trump doubled down and posted another tweet Sunday night, saying it was "sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country.”

Trump has frequently gone after Omar, who was born in Somalia and came to the U.S. as a refugee with her family, for her vocal views of the United States’s relationship with Israel.
