"The Amazon Washington Post did a story that I brought racist attacks against the 'Squad.' No, they brought racist attacks against our Nation," he tweeted.

"All I do is call them out for the horrible things they have said. The Democrats have become the Party of the Squad!" he added.

Trump seemed to be referring to an article published Sunday in The Washington Post that detailed the president's summer.

Trump said they should “go back” to the “places from which they came,” later accusing them of hating America.

All four lawmakers are minorities and U.S. citizens. Omar is the only one who was born in another country. 

The House voted to condemn the remarks as racist.

"Trump leveled racist attacks against four congresswomen of color dubbed 'the Squad,'" the Post's report reads.

The president continued his attacks on the media in two follow-up tweets.

"The LameStream Media has gone totally CRAZY! They write whatever they want, seldom have sources (even though they say they do), never do 'fact checking' anymore, and are only looking for the 'kill,'" he tweeted, without providing examples.

"They are now beyond Fake, they are Corrupt," he added. "The good news is that we are winning. Our real opponent is not the Democrats, or the dwindling number of Republicans that lost their way and got left behind, our primary opponent is the Fake News Media."
