BAN Trump from Twitter and Facebook for ‘trafficking hate speech’ campaigners DEMAND

In a tweet sent before his departure, Trump singled out House speaker Nancy Pelosi for defending Omar, who he sardonically referred to as Pelosi's "leader".

Sanders, who would be the first Jewish president if elected in 2020, has argued repeatedly that the American government must take a harder line against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government over its treatment of Palestinians.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., sits with fellow Democrats on the House Education and Labor Committee during a bill markup, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Klobuchar said. "And when the president put out that video it simply added to the hate and it added to the threat on her life". 'We can no longer ignore that they are being encouraged by the occupant of the highest office in the land'.

Rep. Omar couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

The latest round of attacks on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar seem to have started after a video of Omar describing the 9/11 attacks as "some people did something" began circulating on the internet, giving the right-wing media an opportunity to accuse her of belittling the largest foreign attack on U.S. soil.

It can not be pleasant for Omar's colleagues to have to wonder and worry what that next remark will be-knowing that Donald Trump and his Twitter feed will be waiting to blame all Democrats for the provocations of one.

On Friday, Trump tweeted a video that juxtaposed the snippet - which some Democrats say was taken out of context - with images of the hijacked planes crashing into the World Trade Center's twin towers in NY.

She also vowed to "stand undeterred to continue fighting for equal opportunity in our pursuit of happiness for all Americans". The video coupled her comments from a recent speech in which she said "some people did something" with images of the hijacked airplanes striking the World Trade Center.

Omar has faced a slew of attacks and death threats in recent weeks, along with ongoing criticisms since she made scathing comments against Israel, and now with comments she made on the September 11 attacks. Over 90,000 people retweeted Trump's tweet, and over 250,000 "liked" it.

"First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something, ' " tweeted Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, on Tuesday. She later sought to defend herself by tweeting a quote from former U.S. President George W. Bush.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) recently minimized the September 11, 2001 terror attack on USA soil that killed 3,000 people.

But even if Trump calling attention to Omar's comment had the effect of causing her to receive death threats, Trump himself did not threaten or incite violence, in either a strictly legal or a metaphorical sense. "They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces". In doing so, and by refusing to pledge allegiance to Israel, she's faced vicious smears calling her antisemitic (including from Trump). House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said he had no issue with how Omar characterized 9/11.

She's accused Trump of fomenting right-wing extremism and urged him to stop.

Omar's comment drew further criticism from the hosts of "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday.
