Trump's Tweet Of 911 Video Draws Supporters Of Muslim Representative

Pelosi asks police to protect Ilhan Omar after Trump attack

This statement attracted more hateful comments towards the Congresswoman after Trump tweeted it with the caption "We will never forget!" and added an edited video of the 9/11 attacks.

One of the first ever Muslim members of the US Congress has said that a tweet by President Donald Trump has led to an increase in threats against her life.

Trump had again put Ihan Omar, a 37-year-old Congresswoman, in the spotlight when he drew attention to her comments at an American-Relations event in Los Angeles. "For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it. Cair was founded after 9/11 because they recognised that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties".

Cair, she said, was founded "because they recognised that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties". The video, containing graphic footage of the World Trade Center being destroyed, took one line of a speech she made in March entirely out of context, leading to a large amount of aggressive threats made against the congresswoman.

Speaking at a Fox News town hall in Pennsylvania, Sanders backed Omar - who has come under fire in the past for using anti-Semitic tropes while criticizing Israel - but also said she "has got to do maybe a better job in speaking to the Jewish community".

She quoted President George W. Bush, who after the 9/11 attacks said, "The people - and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!"

Referring to her previous controversial comments, in which Ms Omar questioned U.S. support for Israel, Ms Sanders added: "It's absolutely abhorrent the comments that she continues to make and has made and they look the other way".

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.

She followed standard USA diplomatic protocol of senior officials not criticising the president while overseas.

An upstate NY man recently was charged with making death threats against her.

"President Trump must take down his disrespectful and risky video", she said, adding that security officials are reviewing Ms Omar's protection and "will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces". "It has to stop", Omar wrote in a tweeted statement.

Even before the 2018 Midterms, Muslim American lawmaker, Ilhan Omar, has been the target of a vast smear campaign; Whether it's by Republican groups, right-wing journalists, Israel lobbyists, or Saudi trolls. "I thank the Capitol Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the House Sergeant at Arms, and the Speaker of the House for their attention to these threats", Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, said in a statement released on Sunday evening. The disgusting and unsafe attacks against her must end.

Trump aides and allies say they are pleased that some of the Democratic hopefuls for the 2020 presidential nomination are defending her against the president's attacks, claiming they think it will be damaging for them in the general election.

"We are all Americans".
