President Trump says that freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apology for tweets is ‘lame’ and she should resign.
Trump said it was “terrible” what Omar said. “I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. What she said is so deep-seated in her heart. Her apology was “lame and she didn’t mean a word of it.”
President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D., Minn.) apology for tweets widely condemned as anti-Semitic was “lame,” saying she should consider resigning from Congress.
At the very least, Trump said Omar should lose her committee assignments, especially her seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
“One other thing I might want to say is that anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress, and Congressman Omar is terrible [for] what she said,” Trump said. “And I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. What she said is so deep seated in her heart that her lame apology – and that’s what it was, it was lame and she didn’t mean a word of it – was just not appropriate.”
“At a minimum, she shouldn’t be on committees, certainly that [the foreign affairs] committee,” Trump added.
We can count on President Donald Trump not giving her a free pass but the rest of the Congress not so much! We can only imagine how the MSM would be flipping out if it were a Republican who uttered (or tweeted) the exact same thing as she did. Shame on anyone who voted for such a notorious bigot and liar!
