President Trump said goodbye to Speaker of the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and four of her progressive newcomers on Twitter on Sunday, telling them to return to their countries of origin to remedy the corruption of these nations before teaching the United States.
In the tweet, Trump described them as "progressive democratic congress women" whose homelands are crumbling with corruption, and said they should return home to help the sufferer.
He also said that she would like Nancy Pelosi to leave, and suggested she would even pay for her trip.

Trump's tweets triggered a backlash from members of the congress, including Pelosi and Michigan's MP Rashida Tlaib.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives responded shortly afterwards to Trump's tweet and said that it was not about politics. As for the race, she claims that the president wants to "whitewash America."
She also called for Trump's comments on xenophobia and called for an end to all ICE raids in favor of a reform of nonpartisan immigration.

New York City Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez struck the script in her Twitter response Trump reversed and blamed him for corruption Lawlessness on the southern border accused him of intentionally frightening him as he was driven by anger. Meanwhile, Tlaib tweeted a call for impeachment on Trump's statements, saying he represented the real crisis, not the immigration issue in the South Border.
The Puerto Rican Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx, New York, and grew up in the suburb of Westchester County. Pressley, the first black woman elected to Congress, is from Massachusetts but was born in Cincinnati. Tlaib, who along with Omar became one of the first two Muslim women ever to be elected to Congress, was born in Detroit.
Omar is the first Somali native to be elected to the House of Representatives, and although she was born in Somalia, she spent much of her childhood in a Kenyan refugee camp as a civil war tore her country apart. She is the only one of the four who was not born on American soil.
The Washington-based Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) condemned Trump's comments and made a statement by her National Executive Director Nihad Awad:
"Trump's latest racist tweets echo the calls" Go back, where you come from ", which is heard daily by American Muslim women and children, immigrants and other minority people in our country It is sad to see the inhabitants of the Oval Office transition from empowering and promoting racist taunts to their actual use "said Awad. "If Trump shouts the same thing to a Muslim woman wearing hijab in a Walmart, he may be arrested."
Omar has donated to CAIR, the influential civil rights group for Muslims. CAIR has been condemned by conservatives who claim the group has unjustly identified its critics with Islamophobia.
Justin Amash, who said he is leaving the GOP on Trump's part and is the only Republican to call for his removal, also intervened and described the President as a disgusting racist.
Matt Wolking, deputy communications director "Who says the president told Congressional members to return to where they come from," he wrote on Twitter. "He told them," Then come back and show us how it's done. ", and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Ocasio-Cortez had been public ingenuity in her responses to Pelosi and had accused the spokeswoman of having her busy with her work to keep her calm and out of the way.
On Sunday, the Washington Post wrote Karen Attiah, editor of global opinion, blaming Pelosi for Trump's comments, saying her sharp criticism of her own members allowed the president to attack.
