PUSHBACK

Ilhan Omar Fires Back at Trump: ‘You Have Trafficked in Hate Your Whole Life’

Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has fired back at President Trump after he criticized her apology over her anti-Semitic tweets as “lame” and called for her to resign. The drama began Sunday night, when Omar implied on Twitter that the nonprofit AIPAC was paying politicians to back pro-Israel stances. After facing pushback from both sides of the aisle, the new rep apologized—but that apparently wasn’t enough for Trump, who, no stranger to offending people, said that she should resign from Congress, or at least the House Foreign Affairs Committee. On Wednesday morning, Omar shot back: “You have trafficked in hate your whole life—against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more. I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?”
