"Hey Mr. President, remember when you bragged about sexually assaulting women, talking about feeling their breasts and genitals, because 'when you’re a star they let you do it?'" Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Tuesday, referring to Trump's comments that resurfaced in 2016. 

"And then you imposed DOE policies to make it harder for sexual assault survivors to report assault?"

Trump had earlier accused a group of four Democratic congresswomen of "spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate."

His Tuesday tweet follows up on a weekend attack on the House freshmen, whom he said should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

All of the women are U.S. citizens and only one, Omar, who came to the U.S. as a refugee, was born outside the country.

The House is expected to vote on a resolution condemning Trump's words as racist later Tuesday. 

"Weak minds and leaders challenge loyalty to our country in order to avoid challenging and debating the policy,” Ocasio-Cortez said at a Monday press conference. “He does not know how to defend his policies, so what he does is attack us personally.”

Weeks before the 2016 election, the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced in which president Trump bragged about groping and kissing women without their consent and said he would “grab them by the p----.”
