Commenters on Twitter were quick to condemn President Donald Trump on Sunday morning after he encouraged unnamed foreign-born "Progressive" Democratic lawmakers to go back to their "corrupt" places of birth and fix the problems there instead of criticizing the job he is doing.
Trump's comments come the day after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) -- who was born in Somalia -- criticized the president's immigration policies.
As one commenter offered, Trump's tweets were "pure racism."
