Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said Sunday night she's received an influx of death threats since President Trump tweeted a video that combined comments from the congresswoman - which critics said were dismissive of the September 11 attacks - with footage from Ground Zero.

"Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very unsafe immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only", Trump tweeted.

"They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces", she wrote.

"Well we're looking to see if there are options that make it possible, and doing a full and thorough and extensive review".

The exchange between the president and Oakland's mayor comes after another week of twists and turns in Trump's quest to implement his immigration agenda.

On Meet the Press, Kellyanne Conway, counsellor to the president, described the two women as "radical freshmen" adding that moderate Democrats are frustrated with them. saying they are causing "trouble in Pelosi paradise".

On Saturday night, to widespread consternation, the president tweeted that it was: "Just out: The USA has the absolute legal right to have apprehended illegal immigrants transferred to Sanctuary Cities".

The Democratic-led House of Representatives is determined, however, to bring the President, his family and his businesses under more scrutiny. But Trump said Friday he was still considering the idea. This was raised at a staff level initially and pushed back on.

Gidley said the White House has put forward multiple proposals to stem the flow of illegal immigration, but Democrats have not "come to the table".

Trump captioned his tweet with: "WE WILL NEVER FORGET!"

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said President Donald Trump showed "contempt" for the law when he told a top administration official he would pardon him if he were jailed for defying the law. "Democrats say that if you even think about rejecting people into this country illegally, that you are somehow racist".
