Trump Unleashes on Pelosi and ‘Her Leader’ Ilhan Omar: She Has Made ‘Ungrateful U.S. HATE Statements’

Donald Trump accused Rep. Ilhan Omar, (D-MN)., of being “out of control” and claimed she held power over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

And it’s getting ugly.

“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!” Trump wrote.

His tweet was prompted by the top Democrat urging him to remove a video from his Twitter feed that attacked the freshman representative for comments she made about the 9/11 terror attacks in March at a Council on American-Islamic Relations event.

Omar said CAIR was “founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

Trump shared the video Friday that juxtaposed Omar’s comments about with images of the twin towers and Pentagon burning during the terror attacks.

Trump’s mention of Pelosi is continuing criticism that started Sunday night, when he panned her 60 Minutes interview as a “puff piece.” Pelosi recently condemned Trump‘s “dangerous” Omar video while announcing that she is requesting increased security arrangement for the congresswoman.

Twitter had some thoughts:
