The meeting is "to have a more open-ended conversation and see what we can do to come together on strategy", Ocasio-Cortez said.
President Trump set off a political firestorm Sunday, tweeting of the foursome often critical of USA policy: "Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came".
Omar responded on Twitter, on one account saying, "Together we are fighting for a vision of America where its promise is alive for all who seek it". "When someone goes out and says the awful things about our country, the people of our country, that are anti-Semitic, that hate everybody, that speak with scorn and hate, that to me is really a unsafe thing", he said, in an apparent reference to Omar or Tlaib.
Trump said Omar, a Somalia-born representative who arrived as a refugee in the United States with her family in 1992, is "lucky to be where she is, let me tell you, and the things that she has said are a disgrace to our country". U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley of MA and U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI and Ocasio-Cortez were born in the United States.
Trump has come under intense fire after he attacked four first-term Democratic congresswomen known as the "Squad". In a tweet, she said the "GOP wants to send us "back towards injustice, back to the denial of science, back to the times when women needed permission slips from men, back to racism".

Television footage showed, however, that Trump let the chant continue for more than 10 seconds before he resumed speaking. "Those are incredible patriots", Mr Trump told reporters on Friday, when asked about the chants. "I was not happy when I heard that chant", he said.
"We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president, because his policies are a nightmare to us", she said.
On Thursday he said "I disagree" with the chanting that took place in a rally held in his support.
