GENEVA (Reuters) – Four Democratic members of Congress vilified by U.S. President Donald Trump are “fantastic”, U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said on Thursday.

“I believe that those four women are fantastic,” Bachelet said. She declined to answer directly when asked if Trump was racist, but said it was not good for global leaders to use hate speech.
