U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday defended supporters at a rally who chanted 'send her back,' in reference to a Somali-born Democratic lawmaker. Trump said he was unhappy about the chant, which was widely seen as racist, but defended his supporters as "incredible patriots," and said of Rep. Ilhan Omar, "she's lucky to be where she is."
