Trump tweet row: Don’t take the bait, congresswomen say

The four US congresswomen attacked by US President Donald Trump in a series of racially charged tweets have dismissed his remarks as a distraction. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib urged the US people “not to take the bait” at a Monday press conference. Trump suggested the four women all US citizens “can leave”. He has defended his comments and denied allegations of racism. Addressing reporters, the four women known as The Squad all said the focus should be on policy and not the president’s words.
