STORYLINE: President Donald Trump's tweet telling four congresswomen to "go back to where they came from" sent a painful message to many Americans that they are not welcome in their own country. His comments echo remarks they have heard throughout their lives. But this time, they came straight from the occupant of the Oval Office. Maribel Ortiz, who lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, said the president's comments were particularly hurtful to her as a native of Puerto Rico who grew up in Boston during more racially tense times in the city. "Puerto Rico is part of the United States, and I've been treated like I'm from another country," Ortiz said. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
