Omar says Trump encourages violence, hate

Trump trolls Muslim congresswoman with video of her 9/11 comments

This statement attracted more hateful comments towards the Congresswoman after Trump tweeted it with the caption "We will never forget!" and added an edited video of the 9/11 attacks. The tweet was posted atop Trump's Twitter feed for much of yesterday, with more than 9 million views.

Mr. Trump, instead, lambasted the Speaker for her lack of "control" over Omar and her "anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. HATE statements".

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., speaks during an interview with The Associated Press in her office at the Capitol in Washington, April 10, 2019. Chairwoman Karen Bass said whipping up "outrage" over Omar "further puts her life in danger".

"Some people did something", she said in her speech.

Acknowledging that support, Omar said in a tweet on Saturday, "Thank you for standing with me - against an administration that ran on banning Muslims from this country - to fight for the America we all deserve".

The media and twitter attacks on Omar follow the arrest two weeks ago of a right-wing Trump supporter in NY for threatening physical violence against the Minnesota congresswoman. Republican lawmakers and commentators singled out the one line to falsely accuse Omar of minimizing the September 11 attacks.

The tweet showed Ms Omar talking to a US-Muslim group about the 9/11 attacks.

Speaking to United States media earlier on Sunday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders defended Trump, saying the president has a duty to highlight Omar's history of making comments that others deem anti-Semitic or otherwise offensive and that he wished no "ill will" upon the first-term politician.

On Feb. 7, just hours after the National Basketball Association trade deadline, the New York Knicks released Kanter. Portland led 39-24 after one, shooting 60 percent from the floor to overwhelm the Thunder in the early going.

Those "other remarks" he's referring to are the string of anti-Israel sentiments she's shared since entering Congress.

"I think that what she is experiencing right now, she does not deserve - from what she said in her speech, she does not deserve the kind of vicious, hate-filled attacks that she's experiencing, threats on her life, right now", said Booker, one of almost 20 contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination.

"I'm not going to tell the president what he should or should not do with the Twitter account", Lotter said.

Trump on Friday tweeted a video that juxtaposed the snippet, to a backdrop of menacing music, with images of the destruction wrought by the hijacked planes slamming into the Twin Towers, which once dominated New York's skyline. Leading members of Omar's centre-left Democrat party have stepped up to defend her, including several presidential candidates.

Ms Omar's comments in the video were made during an event by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and took place last month. She blamed Democrats for refusing "to call her out" for what she termed anti-Semitic comments by Omar.

Crenshaw also endorsed a tweet that claimed Omar "does not consider [September 11] a terrorist attack on the us by terrorists" and repeated the far-right conspiracy theory that CAIR serves as little more than a front for foreign terrorists. Pelosi called on Trump to take down his video linking Omar and 9/11.

Supporters of Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, of Minnesota, are demonstrating against President Trump's planned campaign stop in her home state on Monday, as the president continues to lash out against Omar for what some considered disrespectful or flippant language she had used to describe the 9/11 terrorist attackers.
