President Donald Trump fired back at four far-left members of Congress from his Twitter account as they held a media conference to denounce his tweets against them.
"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country," the president tweeted just minutes before the press conference. "IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!"

"It is your choice, and your choice alone," he added. "This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country."
The four congresswomen claimed that the president had told them to go back to where they came from in order to distract the public and media from illegal aliens raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Others pointed to the controversy over conditions at the overwhelmed migrant detention centers.
"They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, 'some people did something.' Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more," the president continued in a second tweet.
"Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps!" he added. "America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"
In another tweet he said that the feud had forced Democrats to embrace the radicals and their extreme policies.
"The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four 'progressives,'" he tweeted, "but now they are forced to embrace them."

"That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!" he added.
"The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS," he added.

"MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!" he concluded.
He also defended his statements to reporters on Monday. The original feud began when the four members of Congress revolted against a border funding bill endorsed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), but the president has co-opted it with his unapologetic condemnation.
