Headlines that challenge Trump's claim that he tried to stop the"send her back chants at his rally

The crowd at a Trump rally on Wednesday night chanted "send her back" when he brought up Omar - a reference to a tweet attacking the four congresswomen he had sent the previous day.

A day after Donald Trump tried to distance himself from racist chants heard at one of his campaign rallies, the USA president praised the crowd as one full of "incredible patriots".

The first-term politicians - except for Omar - were born in the United States and are of Hispanic, Arab, Somali and African-American descent. He had distanced himself Thursday from the chant (which was directed at Omar) but on Friday accused the media of showing a double standard in coverage.

Shortly after her election, she was praised for fighting to change a 181-year-old ban on headwear in the House, allowing her to wear a hijab for her oath of office. "She's lucky to be where she is, let me tell you", he said, referring to Ms Omar.

U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Saturday that President Donald Trump relished a chant by the crowd at a campaign rally this week that called for a Democratic congresswoman to be sent back where she came from. We are not deterred.

All four are known as sharp critics of Trump's policies as well as the Democratic leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Mr Trump was accused of racist behaviour for what he said - something which he denied, saying: "Those tweets were NOT racist". He said that those who are not happy in the USA can leave, despite Trump himself having repeatedly spoken out against past USA policies and administrations. U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley of MA and U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI and Ocasio-Cortez were born in the United States.

Many have come to Omar's defence under #IStandWithIlhan. They also said that as "the squad" they would continue to put the focus back on the issues they feel need attention, including immigration, healthcare and education. Trump has particularly singled out Omar, who, along with Tlaib, are the first Muslim women to serve in Congress, in recent days. "I distance myself from this decidedly and stand in solidarity with the women who were attacked", Merkel said at her annual press conference in Berlin, adding that "US's strength lies exactly in the fact that people of very different nationalities contribute to the strength of the American people".
