Trump is also going after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He’s accusing her of having “lost all control of Congress” and “getting nothing done,” and says, before she decides to “defend her leader, Rep. Omar,” she should look at her past comments.
He asserts, without evidence, that Omar is “out of control, except for her control of Nancy!”
Rep. Ilhan Omar says she’s faced increased death threats since President Donald Trump spread around a video that purports to show her being dismissive of the 2001 terrorist attacks. “This is endangering lives,” she said, accusing Trump of fomenting right-wing extremism. “It has to stop.”
Her statement late Sunday followed an announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she has taken steps to ensure the safety of the Minnesota Democrat and the speaker’s call for Trump to take down the video.
