U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin speaks at the Jordan Growth and Opportunity Conference in London, Britain, on February 28, 2019.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday", host Chris Wallace asked Sanders whether Trump would "demand that the IRS not turn over his tax returns" or, rather, "live with whatever the IRS decides".

Mnuchin told the media on Saturday that he was trying to move carefully in overseeing a request that raises "very, very complicated" legal questions, emphasising that his decision could have long-lasting repercussions for future requests by Congress to the IRS. "If anything, you should consider it on the Democrat side to be an olive branch".

"It's part of a pattern of conduct we certainly have to take a look at after we see the Mueller report", Nadler said.

In her speech before a Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, Omar said Muslims had "lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it".

Trump claimed it wouldn't make sense to release his tax returns while, he said, they are under audit.

The president's strategy, however, relies on a risky and relatively narrow path for victory, hinged on demonizing Trump's eventual opponent and juicing turnout among his most avid supporters in Florida, Pennsylvania and the Upper Midwest - the same areas that won him the White House but where his popularity has waned since he was elected. Democrats who criticized the president over the tweet defended Omar, with some noting their past disagreements with her. "The bigger question is why aren't Democrats doing the same thing?"

Gidley specifically singled out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco district as one potential destination.

"We're never going to change this with troops and walls at the border", Graham said of the USA immigration crisis. "That's what their stated goal is, so there is no reason we shouldn't be looking at a way to give them exactly what they want". "And we are not afraid of diversity in the state of Washington". "The idea that the administration thought in any way that it would be acceptable to use families and children, human beings, as political retribution against their enemies should infuriate every American regardless of political affiliation".

Trump has staked his presidency on his insistence that the United States is being overrun by migrants and asylum seekers.

The campaign and Republican allies have pointed to recent Democratic proposals for expanding Medicare and investing in green energy projects as a chance to frame the 2020 race as a referendum on what they view as socialist policies.

On Friday, Trump tweeted a video that juxtaposed the snippet, which Omar's fellow Democrats say was taken out of context, with images of the hijacked planes used in the attacks crashing into the Twin Towers that once dominated New York's skyline.
