President Trump blasted House Speaker NancyPelosi for defending Rep. Ilhan Omar and called the freshman Democrat “anti-Semitic” and “out of control.”
“Before Nancy, who has lost all control of Congress and is getting nothing done, decides to defend her leader, Rep. Omar, she should look at the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. HATE statements Omar has made. She is out of control, except for her control of Nancy!” Trump tweeted Monday.
The president’s tweets come after Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Sunday that she’d taken steps to ensure the safety of Omar, D-Minn., after the president tweeted a video that combined images of the 9/11 terror attacks with remarks by Omar.
The video showed the burning World Trade Center towers and Omar speaking last month at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), where she said the organization was founded because “some people did something” and Muslims “were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
