He tweeted that the lawmakers, all women of color, should "go back" where they came from. Only Omar was born outside of the U.S.

Amash voted for a House resolution earlier this week to condemn Trump's tweets as racist. 

Just four Republicans joined all Democrats in backing the resolution. 

Before Amash left the GOP over differences with Trump and the direction the party was taking, he was the only Republican to publicly support impeachment. He has said he is not ruling out a potential 2020 presidential run.
