Ilhan Omar calls Trump over his history of anti-Semitism, xenophobia

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) Faced back with President Donald Trump on Wednesday after calling her recent apology for controversial tweets "lame" and saying to the president, "I've learned from people influenced by my words . When are you going to?"

"They have dealt with hatred all their lives – against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, blacks and more" She tweeted on him in response to his criticism.

Trump, unaware of controversial and anti-Semitic remarks and not apologizing, suggested that Omar either resign from Congress or withdraw from the State Department's Foreign Affairs Committee after being accused of using "anti-Semitic tropes." on twitter.

"What she said is so deep in her heart that her lame apology – that was it, it was lame and she did not say a word about it – just was not appropriate," he said Tuesday.

On Sunday, Omar suggested on Twitter that members of the Congress support Israel because they were paid to do so and criticize both parties.


Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. apologized on Monday for tweets suggesting that members of the congress support Israel for being paid, which sparked criticism between the two parties and the rejection of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

"Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who enlighten me in the painful history of anti-Semitic tropics," the new legislator said on Monday in their apology. "My intention is never to insult my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole."

"We must always be prepared to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity," she continued. "That's why I apologize unequivocally."

Senator James Lankford (R-Okla.) Was one of those who supported Omar's apology, which he described as "totally appropriate" in contrast to Trump.

"She's a brand new first-year representative. Sometimes you come out there and say things and then you try to correct it, "he said on CNN's New Day on Wednesday. "For each of us who is watching TV right now, you're asking questions, you're giving answers, or you're putting out a tweet that's trying to be funny or a point, and sometimes you go beyond that."

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday stated the "hypocrisy" in Trump's criticism of Omar, while in 2015, he played several clips with Trump's commentary on money before the Republican Jewish Coalition.

"I am a negotiator, as are you folks," he once said to the members of the coalition, reminding himself of the stereotype that Jews are greedy, cunning businessmen.

"Is there anyone who does not renegotiate the stores in this room? This room is renegotiating … maybe more than any other room I've ever spoken to, "he said as well.
