A united show of defiance in the face of racist comments from the leader of most powerful nation on earth.

"The first note that I want to tell children across this country is that no matter what the president says this country belongs to you," said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

In a short press conference, Representatives Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ocasio-Cortez responded.

"There were many people who approached me who said, 'I disagree with some of your policies. I’m an independent, I’m a Republican, but I think what he did was wrong,'" Pressley said.

The president over the weekend tweeted a number of things, but perhaps the most disturbing, was the president telling four members of the United States Congress, all US citizens, all women of color, to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

Democrats condemned the remarks. Republican leaders were noticeably silent on the matter.

At a White House function Monday afternoon, Trump doubled down again.

"If you're not happy in the US, if you're complaining all the time, you can leave. You can leave right now," he said.

The four progressive freshmen Democrats, referring to themselves as The Squad, also took the opportunity to reiterate their party platform and said they would not be fazed by the comments from the president.     

"So instead, he tells us that I should go back to the great borough of the Bronx and make it better, and that's what I'm here to do," Ocasio-Cortez said.
