Trump Claps Back at ‘Extremely Unpatriotic’ Omar

“Unpatriotic” is not a label often used to describe those who campaign and ascend to some of the highest offices in the land, but President Donald Trump called one freshman representative just that this week.

Speaking about controversial senator Ilhan Omar, who has already made headlines for her derisive statements about Israel and Judaism, the president used harsh terms to describe her lack of patriotism and support for the nation.

Omar already made waves after comments she made about the September 11 terror attacks on the nation, downplaying the devastation and stating simply “something happened”.

This lack of interest in one of the most tragic attacks on the United States in a century led to significant push-back from all quarters – including colleagues from the representative from Minnesota’s own party.

What Was Actually Said?

Omar was presenting a speech to the Council of American-Islamic Relations last month and included the topic of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, which she dismissed with “some people did something”.

Backlash from Republicans and the press was almost immediate and even the Democratic party spoke out about the dismissive way the representative discussed the tragedy.

The New York Post joined the President and key politicians and publications in denouncing Oman’s remarks and chastising her for her lack of respect for this relatively recent tragedy.

President Trump Responds

After hearing her statements and responses, President Trump took to Twitter to call her out for her distinctly disrespectful and “extremely unpatriotic” behavior.

He also shared a video that harshly criticizes Omar for her stance on this national tragedy – that befell the nation and people she is sworn to serve.

The video features actual 9-11 footage of Americans in peril, inter-cut with Omar’s disinterested remarks.

The video was widely shared and Omar’s statements made a shocking commentary when played alongside the sacrifices and losses everyday citizens and first responders made that day.

Speaking to KSTP, a local Minnesota television station, President Trump revealed he has no regrets about calling out the freshman senator and holding her responsible for her actions.

He also cited her noted anti-Semitism, something her own party has attempted to distance themselves from.

No Regrets from President Trump

When asked if he regrets sharing the video that directly criticizes Omar, President Trump had this to say:

“No, not at all,” Trump said to local television station KSTP in Minnesota on Monday. “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.”

He continued, sharing his opinion and concern about the impact Omar would have on the state of Minnesota and the nation itself:

“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,”

Omar was quick to respond to criticism, not apologizing for minimizing a monumental loss of life and tragedy, but to complain that Trump was causing others to target her. According to Omar,

“Since the President’s tweet Friday evening, I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life — many directly referencing or replying to the President’s video”.

Omar’s primary concern was her own feeling of security and her own political viewpoints, not the feelings of others.

She called for support — and received some, mainly from members of her own local party and progressive groups in various pockets across the nation.

The representative did not apologize or back down from her original stance, despite being called out on magazine covers, by regular citizens on Twitter and by leaders from her own party.

This is not the first time that Omar has launched attacks against American citizens or behaved in a clearly unpatriotic way. In the few months that she has been in office, she has repeatedly spoken out against Israel and against America for the ongoing friendship and support between the two nations.

Her recent comments and official statements have been seen by many as troubling and outright anti-Semitic.

Omar has yet to dial back on the anti-Semitic rhetoric and continues to malign the hard working citizenry she claims to support.

  21. I think this person IIhan Omar should be run out of this country, she does not like America and she has shown that every time she opens her mouth. She is a Muslim and is here to do her best to change this country and not for the good of the citizens of this great country. In my opinion, there should be a law stating that you must be a born American citizen to be elected to any office of our government. Call me what you will, I believe a born American will have the best interest of this country in mind when elected to any government position and not some foreign country that hates our
    guts!

  22. Sorry, I meant Devin Nunes!

  23. . . .and how many times has the left called President Trump anti-Semitic?! Pot calling the kettle. . . but then that’s the Left’s playbook! Their best efforts to impeach the president right now are ludicrous. It is they who have committed the crimes, not him! Just wait and see how this all washes out! After the AG, the IG , Tom Finton, Deion Nunes and Lindsey Graham get through with them there may not be a Democrat party left.

  24. This woman is filled with the Allah line of thought and believes all Americans should submit to
    her ideology of submission. She will not submit to any pressure because she is in submission to Allah, the
    evil one. We can not expect any apology from a true Muslim not can we expect the truth from them. For
    them to lie to us about their loyalty to the Constitution and our Christian way of life is just plain nonsense.

  25. Would like to see her DEPORTED for good.

  26. The following refers to any Elected Official that conducts themselves in such a disgraceful manner as Ilhan Omar and should be immediately removed from any standing committee and Impeached.

    Ilhan Omar’s recent arrogant and disgraceful comments can only be interpreted as follows:

    What Anti-American, Anti-Semitic Omar is actually saying in her comments is the same rhetoric we hear through Muslim or Islamic nations: “DEATH TO AMERICA”. It is obvious that her intentions as a Representative from Minnesota is the same Islamic Agenda that has destroyed viable countries Islamists have migrated to for over 1,400 years. It states in the Qur’an that Muslim’s, especially of Omar’s caliber, are FORBIDDEN to assimilate with the United States Constitution or Judeo/Christian principles or way of life. It is time to deport her back to the “CESSPOOL” from whence she came!

  27. She needs to be removed, she’s a worthless piece of flotsam.

  28. Let her once again, live in a land of Sharia splendor, make the same comments about that country and see how well that thick head can repel the stones they throw or the sword used to decapitate her. This sort of rhetoric must cease, when you take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, violate that oath, she should be removed from Office and tried for treasonous activities.

  29. As a citizen of the United States and a veteran this woman is in no way a true American and I can’t believe she is in congress.

  30. Ilhan Omar is a supporter of terrorists and is supported by terrorist money. She is a threat to America and the world. Any secure information given to her will certainly go straight to the enemies of the US. And her being on the House Foreign Affairs Committee this transfer of information is unavoidable. Pelosi and the House Democrats should be held accountable when this causes the deaths of Americans around the world.

  31. send her back to the country she came from, that way she will be very happy.

  32. israel deserves to be criticized. It stole Palestine, murdered countless Palestinians in the process of stealing their country and continues to murder them. When the atheist jews stole Palestine, they literally had Palestinians thrown out of their homes, stole their houses so some jewish family from places like New York who have never even seen a grain of sand, could move into that stolen home. It’s a Shitty Little country, the size of New Jersey and evil to its core with over 200 strip clubs, jews who spit at Christians who come to visit the Holy Land. They have nuclear weapons pointed across the globe that they refuse to let the inspectors in to analyze but everybody else has to comply with inspections. It’s the place where ecstasy is manufactured. The Holy Land is gone, replaced by Children of Satan.

  33. She should be put on a Camel and Send to the deepest Dessert in Camel Land.

  34. Freshman Congresswoman, Omar has shown how much she “dislikes” (Hates mighjt be thee correect word here) almost of the thingss that most of the PEOPLE of the USA arre supporters of. There are FRINGE bhaters oin the right and the Left, but it seeems that SHE is one of ther many radical USA haters on that side of poklitics.
    Her party,, the Democrats, at first after one of her perticularry anti Israel rants,came out condemning her, but when push came to shove, they lightened up and said it is just a form of Racism not really more anti Israel that it is RACIST, Oh Yeh?

  35. She should be kicked out of the Senate. What she is doing is unacceptable.

  36. Yes she is very disrespectful and it is her way or the highway, doesn’t and shouldn’t work very well in our great country, AMERICA.

  37. It seems she is just another Obama atrocity to hit this country. He, after all, settled so many Islamic terrorists in her neighborhood and probably got her elected in the first place. Can’t imagine any actual American voting for her.

  38. Ilhan Omar, don’t blame others for your lack of respect for the United States of America and all American citizens. Your being targeted is the direct result of what you say and do, not because of some video. If you don’t like America or Americans and what we stand for, then do yourself a favor and leave. And to all the people who said that they would leave the United States if Donald Trump was elected President of the United States of America, AND HE WAS FAIRLY ELECTED, despite being COLLUDED AGAINST by RUSSIA AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY (this is where the REAL COLLUSION lies), WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE?? The answer is: you are a bunch of losers and whiners that know you are much better off here in the United States of America. Only in America can you spout out so much bullshit without being imprisoned, tortured, and perhaps even killed because of your stupid political views. As a patriotic American, and there are plenty of us, all I have to say is “don’t push your unamerican agenda or views on us because you’ll push us into a corner and when push comes to shove, we will shove back.”

  39. One slight correction to this message; Omar is not a senator. She is a representative (congresswoman, if you prefer). Please correct.

  40. What Anti-American, Ant-Semitic Omar is actually saying in her comments is the same rhetoric we here throughout Muslim or Islamic nations: “DEATH TO AMERICA”. It is obvious that her intentions as a Representative from Minnesota is the same Islamic Agenda that has destroyed viable countries Islamist have migrated to for over 1,400 years. It states in the Qur’an that Muslim’s, of Omar’s caliber, are FORBIDDEN to assimilate with the United States Constitution or America’s Judeo/Christian principles or way of life. It is time to send her back to the CESSPOOL from whence she came!

  41. Muslims, Islam, Ismael, and the decendants of Ismael desire to take what GOD Almighty gave Jacob(Israel) and that is the land of Israel! Ishmael, Muslims today, will not get over the FACT that GOD did NOT choose Ismael and he did not choose the firstborn so, Ismael is OUT, Jacob/Israel is GODs Chosen! This is the crux of the matter and the problem today w/Muslims! It will be settled in Zecahriah 10-12 and 14:21b KJV

  42. Omar does not belong in our government. Her true colors are showing. She is a total disgrace to our country.

  43. SHE IS ILLEGALLY IN OUR GOVERNMENT ,JUST LIKE OBAMA WAS AN ILLEGAL PRESIDENT—–THE KORAN FOLLOWING PHILOSOPHY DOES NOT BELONG IN AMERICA ,AND SHE SHOULD BE REMOVED BEFORE SHE DOES MORE DAMAGE TO AMERICA

  44. Omar needs to go to the country where she will be with like minded people. Since she is so unhappy with the United States she can leave and and take all who think like her so we who love the United States and our people may get back to work without someone trying to change us to fit her agenda and her misguided beliefs. She is not a speaker for women or the United States.

  45. Her past actions and statements and her ongoing rhetoric against the people of both The United States Of America and Israel mark her as a terrorist spy within our Government. She continually supports programs and organizations that threaten the safety of our Nation and our Allies. She stands accused and under suspicion of immigration fraud for marrying her own brother in order to get him entrance into the United States. She has called for all Muslims to rise up and make life uncomfortable for all non Muslims in The United States Of America and the world! In my opinion she is actually worse than Mad Maxine Waters (D.) of CA. who also called for all people on the left to rise up and assault Trump Officials and Supporters everywhere they can be found. Both of these women are Un-American traitors who are guilty of Sedition.

  46. Oh well open your mouth to thoughtless unpatriotic & anti semitic statements & you deserve what you get in back lash. How can we expect her [Omar] to be patriotic she is a Muslim first. God bless President Trump & God bless America.

  47. Omar should be impeached, she should go back to Somalia and enjoy all the benefits awaiting her

  48. To back to Somalia! You ‘re not wanted here to cause our people to be like you out of fear! You are a nobody and certainly don ‘t belong here!!!
    ,

  49. I think that she should be forced to resign. She is not a true American and does not hold sacred what this country stands for. She is more interested in her muslim brotherhood.
