His latest targets are Omar and Reps. The four women are Ms Omar, 37, Rashida Tlaib, 42, Ayanna Pressley, 45, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 29. Three were born in the United States; Omar was born in Mogadishu, Somalia, and became a U.S. citizen as a teenager.

Mr Trump tweeted over the weekend that the four progressive representatives, known as "the squad" - Ms Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of MI and Ayanna Pressley of MA - should "go back" where they came from, even though all are USA citizens and three are US-born.

Several, including Kevin McCarthy, leader of the Republicans in the House, have condemned the chants.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger of IL tweeted that it was "ugly, wrong, & would send chills down the spines of our Founding Fathers. This ugliness must end, or we risk our great union".

Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, argued Friday that racism accusations were losing traction in the United States because people were exhausted of hearing them.

Last year, she won her congressional seat, overwhelming a Republican candidate to fill the seat of a Democratic congressman - Keith Ellison, also a Muslim American - who left it to win election as the state's attorney general. Democrats had hoped the spotlight on Thursday would be on House passage of legislation to boost the minimum wage for the first time in a decade.

Matt Bennett, executive vice president of Third Way, a centrist Democratic think tank, said there was a danger the party could play into Trump's hands unless a moderate such as Biden pushes back at the president's attempts to frame the election as a contest between himself and a unsafe leftist.

"Let me hear you say 'I condemn them, '" the former vice president said of Trump following a campaign event in Los Angeles.
