House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lashed out at president Donald Trump for pushing to make America "white again" after the latter attacked four progressive Democratic congresswoman in a racist tweet storm strongly echoing language of white nationalists.

Pelosi blasted Trump for his “xenophobic comments” via Twitter on Sunday in which he called on four female Democratic lawmakers to “go back” to their home countries despite all these women being American citizens. While Trump didn't name the four women directly, it's clear he was referring to Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), all of whom are leading critics of his harsh anti-immigrant policies.

“​When​ @realDonaldTrump​ ​tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries, he reaffirms his plan to ​’​Make America Great Again​’​ has always been about making America white again. Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power​,” tweeted Pelosi two hours after Trump's racist tweets.

Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Pressley are all natural-born U.S. citizens while Omar was born in Somalia but later became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Pelosi later tweeted she rejects Trump’s "xenophobic comments meant to divide our nation. Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy that reflects American values. Stop the raids - #FamiliesBelongTogether!"

In remarks used by racists, Trump on Sunday tweeted these women of color should ​”fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came." Trump's series of tweets also implied the four Democrats weren't born in America.

"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 ... now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States," Trump tweeted. 

"Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how.”

Political analysts said Trump was trying to add to the division currently rippling through the Democratic Party over impeaching him. The infighting has Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez as its main protagonists.

Omar tweeted defiantly, saying, "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."

In her counterattack, Tlaib tweeted, "He is the crisis. His dangerous ideology is the crisis. He needs to be impeached."

Pressley tweeted, "THIS is what racism looks like. WE are what democracy looks like. And we're not going anywhere. Except back to DC to fight for the families you marginalize and vilify everyday."

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted with a thread that began, "Mr. President, the country I 'come from,' & the country we all swear to, is the United States. But given how you've destroyed our border with inhumane camps, all at a benefit to you & the corps who profit off them, you are absolutely right about the corruption laid at your feet."

Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-NM), assistant speaker of the House, echoed Pelosi's sentiments by tweeting, "A racist tweet from a racist president."

Lujan underscored his message about Trump’s unabashed racism on "Fox News Sunday."

"That's a racist tweet," he said to host Chris Wallace. "Telling people to go back where they came from? These are American citizens elected by voters in the United States of America to serve in one of the most distinguished bodies in the US House of Representatives."
