President Trump on Saturday weighed in on the "send her back" chant at his rally.

President Trump on Saturday tweeted about the "send her back" chant that erupted at his recent rally as he was criticizing Somali-born Rep. Ilhan Omar.
"I did nothing to lead people on, nor was I particularly happy with their chant," Trump wrote in his tweet. "Just a very big and patriotic crowd. They love the USA!"
On Thursday, Trump claimed he tried to stop the chant.
However, as CBS News notes: "The video tells a different story. The president stands in silence for nearly 15 seconds, looking around the arena. When Mr. Trump resumed his speech, he made no mention of the chant, which started after he attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar."
Despite widespread criticism, Trump doesn't think the chant was racist.
"You know what's racist to me?" Trump told reporters on Friday, referring to several progressive Congresswomen. "When somebody goes out and says the horrible things about our country — the people of our country — that are anti-Semitic, that hate everybody, that speak with scorn and hate. That, to me, is really a very dangerous thing."
