Nancy Pelosi was on her high horse demanding President Donald Trump bow to her and Rep. Ilhan Omar’s wishes. Pelosi claims she is very worried about the Minnesota Congresswoman and how Americans are treating her, and she laid out her demands. Well, President Trump made sure they got utterly destroyed. You’ll love this.
Rep. Ilhan Omar claims she is in danger due to President Donald Trump. The 37-year-old Somali immigrant is infamous for making anti-Semitic remarks and for refusing to state it was Muslim terrorists who flew planes into the Twin Towers on 9/11, and she is getting help playing the perpetual victim card by Nancy Pelosi.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Sunday that she’s taken steps to ensure the safety of Rep. Ilhan Omar following President Trump’s tweet of a video that, according to critics, showed the Minnesota Democrat being dismissive of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks,” reported Fox News.
The California Democrat also called on Trump to take down the video. The video Trump retweeted Friday pulls a snippet of Omar’s recent speech to the Council on American-Islamic Relations in which she described the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center as “some people did something,” and includes news footage of the hijacked planes hitting the Twin Towers. Trump also tweeted, “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”

“Pelosi was among numerous Democrats who had criticized Trump over the tweet, with some accusing him of trying to incite violence against the Muslim lawmaker,” Fox News added. “The White House defended Trump earlier Sunday, saying the president had a duty to highlight Omar’s history of comments that others have found offensive and that he wished no ‘ill will’ upon the first-term lawmaker.”
Pelosi, who was traveling in London, issued a statement saying she had spoken with congressional authorities after Trump’s tweet “to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family, and her staff.”
“They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces,” the speaker said. She called on Trump to discourage such behavior. “The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video.”
And what is Omar’s response? She claims Trump is fomenting “right-wing extremism” and endangering lives. “This is endangering lives,” she said, “It’s right-wing extremism. It has to stop.”
How is Trump endangering lives? By tweeting out videos in which Omar is speaking? They are her words, not Trump’s. If she is telling the truth about all these lives in danger, then her own words are “endangering lives.”
Well, the president called their bluff. Not only did he not bow down to Omar and Pelosi’s demands, but Trump also utterly destroyed this notion he was somehow to blame for Omar’s so-called distress.
“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!” tweeted Trump.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us [Muslims] were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” said Omar as she addressed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who were found to be co-conspirators with the terrorist group Hamas. That’s who the Congresswoman is sucking up to, but we are supposed to take her word she’s a patriotic American?
Omar offends every American with that statement and is so grossly arrogant she won’t apologize. Well, Americans also weighed in. “Pelosi has lost control, not only to Omar, but also @AOC. It’s evident who’s calling the shots on that side of the aisle… and it’s not the Speaker,” tweeted Tim Young.

“@IlhanMN should resign. If you serve the public you should serve the USA. It’s obvious she doesn’t!” tweeted John Brea.

“So she gets to spout any rhetoric she wants and if she gets called out on it, it’s because of her race, gender or religion? So with this tactic she is effectively free to say anything without having to account for it,” tweeted “Simpozee.”
It was in response to Omar’s tweet: “This country was founded on the ideas of justice, of liberty, of the pursuit of happiness. But these core beliefs are under threat. Each and every day. We are under threat by an administration that would rather cage children than pass comprehensive immigration reform.”

President Trump refuses to play games with the Democrats. He speaks the truth and tells it like it is. Omar is getting Pelosi to back her big victim card to cry about “death threats” when we are sure the president gets threats every day. Rep. Omar has made her extreme anti-American views crystal clear, time and time again.
She can lie and say “Trump put kids in cages” and lie and say “America’s core beliefs are under threat.” Two lies in one tweet. The only party threatening America’s core beliefs are Omar’s rabid leftist Democrats, and she’s not fooling anyone. President Trump and his supporters have had her number since day one.
