New Jersey congressman joins House Democrats 'Squad' because of an Onion article

President Donald Trump speaks during a Made in America showcase on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington Monday

"This is a distraction", Tlaib added.

Tlaib and her fellow "Squad" members - Reps. "Anyone who disagrees with them on anything, including the Speaker of the House". "This is a person that really wants to vilify, demonize, not only immigrants, but even communities of color".

But in the interview, she said she wanted to clear that comment, insisting she didn't say Pelosi was prejudiced against of women of color, but she did find some of her comments "disrespectful".

"All the policies that we're now espousing deal with creating self-sufficiency in people and in those people who can not become self-sufficient, making sure that we take care of them in the most efficient and effective manner".

But the CBS host Gayle King also challenged Pressley over her description of Trump as the "occupant" of the White House.

"He does not embody the principles, the responsibility, the grace, the integrity of a true president", Pressley told King.

Trump tweeted during the weekend that the four congresswomen should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came". Critics were outraged by the racist trope.

"Now, maybe we say politically correct or not politically correct, they don't look like Indians to me and they don't look like Indians to Indians, and a lot of people are laughing at it".

Omar, a refugee from Somalia, became a USA citizen in 2000.

On Wednesday, Trump tweeted remarks made by the Louisiana Senate Republican John Kennedy, calling them the "four horsewomen of the apocalypse" and "wack jobs".

The tweet from Ocasio-Cortez is the latest salvo in an ongoing heated and personal feud that reached new heights on Sunday when Trump falsely implied in a racist tweet that Ocasio-Cortez and several other minority Democratic congresswomen weren't natural-born American citizens.

Addressing widespread criticism of his remarks at the White House on Monday, the Republican said: "It doesn't concern me because many people agree with me".

Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas has introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump, potentially forcing a vote this week on whether to remove the president from office.

Trump also lashed out at the four Democratic women - Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of MA, and Rashida Tlaib of MI - for the third day in a row, accusing them of "spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate".
