People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

Just one day before the House of Representatives is expected to officially impeach President Donald Trump with a floor vote on articles of impeachment, the President sent a frantic six page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who announced the impeachment inquiry against him in September.

The rambling letter reiterated Republican talking points against impeachment and indicated Trump's growing concern at the inevitability of his impeachment.
