Rep. Ilhan Omar made the adult decision to make those (and other) statements in public as an elected official. President Trump, or anyone else, has every right to point out what she said.
It’s getting to the point; we are no longer allowed to criticize this politician. What could be more democratic than making one of the ruling elite off-limits for criticism? And what better defense of the 1st amendment than our media’s concerted effort to suppress speech?
President Trump said he has no regrets about sharing an incendiary video of Rep. Ilhan Omar and called her “extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country,” as the freshman lawmaker claimed an uptick in threats to her life.
Trump made his comments on Monday to local television station KSTP during a trip to Minnesota for an event focused on taxes. He was asked if he had any regrets about a Friday tweet that included video of Omar (D-Minn.) spliced with images of the twin towers falling on Sept. 11, 2001, in the aftermath of terrorist attacks.
“No, not at all,” Trump said. “Look, she’s been very disrespectful to this country. She’s been very disrespectful, frankly, to Israel. She is somebody that doesn’t really understand, I think life, real life, what it’s all about. It’s unfortunate. She’s got a way about her that’s very, very bad I think for our country. I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country.” [Washington Post]
The left can’t believe that everyone, especially Trump is not backing down on speaking our minds and not worrying about political correctness which is the source of their influence and power. We will not apologize for speaking the truth.
Omar has extreme left views and his anti-semitic views. She does not fit in well to the American views and family values. Muslim extremism has no place in our democracy.
If you don’t know if you are a boy or a girl, the Democrats support you. If you are illegal, the Democrats support you. If you are an American citizen of the Jewish faith who fought and sacrificed for this country, they say you are the problem and toss you to the wolves. Democrats better figure it out fast, or this will be a one-party nation, and honestly, that is bad for everyone.
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!

I am so glad we have President Trump and not Hillary. Liberals have taken an all or nothing stand with we must respect and accept cultures that are different than ours; however, those cultures are allowed to disrespect ours. The silent majority is waking up and realizing they are being invaded.
Right now it is looking almost certain President Trump will be re-elected in 2020, and the Senate will control Congress too. I would not be surprised if the Republicans take the House back too.
