Ilhan Omar: The Democrat responds to Trump's call for the resignation of anti-Semitism

Representative Ilhan Omar shot back on Donald Trump after calling for his resignation. He accused the president of pursuing "hatred of human trafficking" all his life.

Ms. Omar wrote that Mr. Trump discriminated against "Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, blacks and more" in a devastating tweet that followed a turbulent week for the congressman accusing her of playing around with anti-Semitic trophies on pro-Israel commentary Lobby group AIPAC.

"You have dealt with hatred all your life – against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous people, immigrants, blacks and more," wrote Mrs. Omar after calling for her resignation. "I learned from people who were influenced by my words. When are you going to?"

Mr. Trump said Tuesday that Ms. Omar should resign because of her comments or lose her board.

"And Congressman Omar is terrible of what she said. And I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly quit the House Foreign Relations Committee, "Trump said Tuesday.

Ms. Omar was criticized in Congress by Democrats and Republicans after she seemed to suspect that Israel's allies in Washington are motivated by money. Later, she made clear that she was referring to AIPAC – one of Washington's most powerful lobby groups – and her efforts to influence politicians.

She also apologized and said she did not intend to use an anti-Semitic stereotype when she made her point.

However, she claimed to denounce the "problematic role of lobbyists in our policies.

She continued, "It's been too long and we have to be ready to speak to it."
