Four Democratic congresswomen targeted by Donald Trump's tweets have urged people not to 'take the bait'. Ayanna Pressley said on Tuesday that their "squad" is big, representing many Americans.

Pressley said Mr Trump's "xenophobic, bigoted" tweets were a "disruptive distraction from the issues".

The women spoke after Mr Trump tweeted over the weekend: "Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."
