Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.), who recently left the Republican party, said President Trump’s “demagoguery” is to blame for the crowd at the president’s rally chanting “send her back” about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

“A chant like ‘Send her back!’ ‘is ugly and dangerous, and it is the inevitable consequence of President Trump’s demagoguery,” Amash tweeted Thursday. “This is how history’s worst episodes begin. We must not allow this man to take us to such a place.”

The chant at Wednesday night’s rally in North Carolina followed days of Trump doubling down on his attacks on freshman Democratic Reps. Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.).
