President Donald Trump on Sunday called out progressive Democratic congresswomen and said “why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

While the president didn’t mention them by name in his tweets, it appears he was attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a native of Somalia, and possibly Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), whose family is Palestinian. Both have been outspoken when it comes to Trump’s administration and the conditions of migrant detention centers on the border.

“So interesting to see 'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run,” the president wrote on Twitter.

Tlaib was born in the United States and Omar is an American citizen.

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” he added. “Then come back and show us how it is done.

Pelosi has been battling with the most liberal wing of her Democratic caucus.

Earlier this week, Tlaib gave emotional testimony and characterized the Trump administration's immigration agenda as governed by “a dangerous ideology.” Tlaib recounted stories of the migrants she met in custody and the conditions of the facilities. She was also joined by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), who earlier this month toured border patrol facilities.
