At President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign rally ahead of the 2020 election, the president slammed all four lawmakers who make up the ‘squad’ individually – and railed against several of the Democratic presidential contenders.
But, Ilhan Omar fell victim of his frequent criticism as she appears to be his target.
Trump accused Omar, a Somalian refugee who became an American citizen, of blaming terrorists attacks on our country.
He said, “She smeared U.S. Service members involved in Black Hawk Down,’ he said referring to the failed 1993 raid in Mogadishu by the U.S. military.
“In other words, she slandered the brave Americans who were trying to keep peace in Somalia. Omar minimized the September 11th attacks on our homeland saying some people did something,” he added.
He also accused her of launching vicious anti-semitic attacks in time past. “She talked about the evil is real, and it’s all about the Benjamin’s,” Trump charged.
‘Send her back, send her back,’ the crowd roared – a reference to Trump’s tweet on Sunday where he suggested the members of the ‘squad’ should go ‘back where they came from’ if they were unhappy.
However, the House voted on Tuesday to condemn his words as racist.
