President Donald Trump says he has no regrets about his tweets that four Democratic freshmen should "go back" to their home countries — though all are citizens and three were born in the United States.

Trump claims the political fallout has benefited him, saying, "I'm winning a lot."

Trump insists he's "not relishing the fight," but says he is enjoying it because he has to get the message out to the American people.

He is pleased that only four Republican House members voted to condemn his comments about the Democratic lawmakers.

Trump made the remarks today as he departed the White House for a campaign rally in North Carolina.
