Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) attacked President Donald Trump on Twitter calling him “corrupt” and “inept” in response to racist remarks he had made towards her and other House lawmakers of color.

“Mr. President, As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States. Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen.”

Then come back and show us how it is done.” The four House freshmen who Trump is referring to are Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Massachusetts).
