“How the hell did that ever happen,” Trump said of Omar’s election to Congress in 2016. “How do you have such a person representing you in Minnesota?”
President denounced Omar, a Somali American lawmaker, as an “America-hating socialist” and criticized her for using the phrase “some people did something” as she spoke about how the reaction to 9/11 affected the Muslim community in the U.S.
Trump also described Omar as a “disgrace to our country.” His campaign held his rally in the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis, which is part of Omar’s voting district.
“How do you have such a person representing you in Minnesota? She is a disgrace to our country,” he said, adding that she was the reason he was going to win Minnesota’s vote for reelection in 2020.
Omar won the 5th Congressional District by a wide margin in the 2018 election.
