Trump blasts Omar as 'anti-Semitic' and 'anti

The tweet was posted atop Trump's Twitter feed for much of yesterday, with more than 9 million views.

But liberals seethed that Pelosi (Calif.) and Democratic leaders did too little, too late.

She said: "CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something".

Representative Ilhan Omar attends a Youth Climate Strike on March 15.

The California Democrat also called on Trump to take down the video. President Trump has demonstrated time and again that he will not hesitate to spread hate and incite violence from as many platforms he can. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. It's why Republican officials use Omar's face to represent terrorism.

By abandoning Omar and fuelling the impression that her AIPAC comments two months ago were anti-semitic, mainstream Democrats and the liberal establishment created the foundation in which attacking a sitting congresswoman's "Americanness" would be eventually acceptable.

Democratic 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) struck a similar tone, when he said that Omar "won't back down to Trump's racism and hate, and neither will we".

Rep. Omar found herself the center of a national controversy last week after she flippantly referred to the September 11 terror attacks that took the lives of almost 3,000 Americans as "some people" who "did something".

Trump seized on another chance to attack Omar, one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress, tweeting out a video about the controversy. Days after 9/11, the Republican president referred to the attackers as "people".

But Omar's allies said that wasn't good enough. Her family later moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota. "They are all people of color". "However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored". "We will never forget", the video reads.

Omar's remark that U.S. political backing for the Jewish state is fueled by money from a pro-Israel lobbying group, and her open support for a boycott and divestment movement against Israel led to vocal criticism from both sides of the political aisle.

"I took an oath to uphold the Constitution", she said. "The response has been so tepid and lackluster".

The comments come after Omar said she had received an uptick in death threats following a video that Trump had posted on Friday lambasting her for her comments at a March 23 event of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in which she described 9/11 as "some people who did something". Omar thanked Pelosi for her statement.

Pelosi had earlier called on Trump to take down the video tweet, adding she has serious concerns for Omar's safety due to the resulting outcry against the congresswoman.

The level of outrage among liberals varies. She apologized for suggesting that lawmakers support Israel for pay and said she isn't criticizing Jews. "Remove his propaganda video targeting Congresswoman Omar". They also launched a petition about the matter.

Pelosi, in the meantime, doesn't appear interested in changing her strategy. Fleeing civil war, her family lived in the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya before moving to the US.

She said: "Here's the truth". "Lower health-care costs, bigger paychecks, cleaner government. It's how to get it done".
