Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) broke her silence Saturday afternoon, responding to controversy that President Donald Trump ignited Friday when he tweeted out a video highlighting comments Omar made recently about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

She claimed that “each and every day” the Trump administration attacks the foundational principles of America’s founding. She also repeated several lies.

Regarding Omar’s claim that Trump’s administration is guilty of “cag[ing] children,” TheBlaze previously reported:

In fact, an image of a child locked in what appears to be some form of cage — which went viral during the migrant crisis last summer that involved family separations — was actually from a staged protest in front of Dallas City Hall, according to fact-checker Snopes.

Meanwhile, Trump’s administration did not implement a policy “banning Muslims.” Instead, Trump campaign on — and later implemented — a policy that temporarily prevented people from certain Muslim-majority countries, which are hotbeds for terrorism, from traveling to the U.S.

On Friday, Trump tweeted a video criticizing Omar for recently referring to terrorists who attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001 as “some people who did something.” Omar’s comments were spliced together with dramatic scenes from 9/11.

In response, Democrats accused the president of inciting violence against Omar. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), one of Omar’s closest progressive allies, even exploited the Holocaust in her effort to condemn Trump.

At the center of controversy are comments Omar made while speaking at a CAIR fundraiser in March. CAIR, of course, has been connected to terrorist activity, and was even listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case, which resulted in numerous convictions for providing material support to Hamas.

“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,” Omar said at the event.

        Yeah, Theresa, he’s a traitor to all the crooked politicians who don’t give two shits about this country or its people, and he’s exposing them for all their corruption. That’s why they hate him.

    C.A.I.R. was founded well before 9/11 and it would not surprise me to learn that their money helped the perpetrators pull it off. Call a spade a spade…Omar is an Islamic Extremist intent on the Muslim Brotherhoods plan to destroy western culture from within. As they continue to reproduce like rabbits, we had all best be prepared to deal with more than a couple such evil individuals in our Congress. That is their plan. Take over through our own blindness to what they do.

      You hit the nail on the head Tom….I agree!

      Yes, Tom, and she has not fooled the majority of Americans. To the peace loving Muslims, Omar is causing Americans to renew their distrust of Muslims. She is a fringe member of terrorists groups.

      Well said Tom. Omar, Tlaib and their sympathizer Ocasio-Cortez all need to be removed from Congress and banned from holding elected or appointed office in our Government. And after reading and hearing what they are all preaching, it needs to be done sooner than later. God help us all if the get to keep up their rhetoric.

    What have you done, Minnesota? Ilhan Omar raises funds for & supports terrorists… I am offended by Islam, Sharia law & the tenants of a militant faith that allow followers to behead, gang rape, burn to death, stone, kill Christians & a lot more… Islam is not a religion of peace, contrary to what Obama says, but a violent threat to western & European civilization… we must rise up against it, as has been done many times in world history & stamp it out. DO NOT FORGET 911…

      I totally agree with you Randy. There are a lot of Muslims who have come here legally and are very happy to just live their lives, but it’s the radical troublemakers who continually stir the pot of hatred. If allah was such a wonderful god, why does he let the level of hatred perpetrate the air. Women, in particular, suffer under the sharia laws, but Omar is one of the lucky ones as she gets to live a life of freedom from persecution. This is what I can’t get my mind around — women are tortured in the Muslim dominated countries, but they want to bring this hatred to our country. They need to live and let live — that’s all that is required.

    Omar needs to get her messed up teeth fixed.
    When she speaks she mouth & tongue are shaped like a lizards mouth! George Soros could have spent some money on fixing her mouth before buying her seat in Congress, at least she wouldn’t be so ugly to look at!

    Omar is a truly evil Palestine Domestic Terrorist with an inbred mouth!
