The House Democrats' tweet included a screenshot of Chakrabarti's response to someone on Twitter saying that while Davids is not racist her votes are "enabling a racist system". I've known her to be very respectful of women of color and very supportive of them.

"This is the most effective way to ensure Trump follows our constitution and doesn't drag us into another costly war in the Middle East", congressman Ro Khanna, the provision's author, said on Twitter. "It is one of morality".

As if in counterpoint to Democrats' testimony, Pence and eight GOP lawmakers toured a border station Friday in Donna, Texas, a vast collection of air-conditioned, interconnected tents built in May to temporarily handle 1,000 migrants and now holding 800.

Four freshman Democrats who reported squalid conditions at migrant detention stations at the southern border are taking the spotlight at a House committee hearing.

Democrat Ro Khanna, who led the amendment, said the measure showed that the United States was fed up with war, according to AFP.

Ocasio-Cortez repeated statements she released immediately after the visit to the El Paso facility, that she saw women drinking water from toilets.

The crossfire was further fueled after the panel's Democrats released a report on 2,648 of the children the Trump administration separated from their families a year ago before abandoning that policy under widespread pressure.

Trump last month came close to launching strikes on Iranian targets following Tehran's downing of an American reconnaissance drone that Iran says breached its airspace.

Trump and Pelosi have had an up-and-down relationship since she assumed the speakership and has led a House Democratic majority during Trump's third year in office.

The president also had some words for another new progressive Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who is closely allied with Ocasio-Cortez.

President Trump was addressing the recent conflict between the Democratic establishment and the progressive wing, which resulted in Ocasio-Cortez accusing Pelosi of singling out "newly-elected women of color".

Pressley and Rep. Veronica Escobar, whose West Texas district includes El Paso and hugs the boundary with Mexico, also testified. She criticized harsh policies "intentionally and cruelly created by a Trump administration dead set on sending a hate-filled message that those seeking refuge are not welcome in America".

The report found that hundreds of children were being held longer than the supposed 72-hour limit and faced clothing shortages and a lack of hot meals, while some adults were detained for a week in a cell so crowded they had to stand.

Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday that the congresswoman "made that up".
