Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) attacked President Trump’s travel ban after he retweeted a story about Minnesota Democrats making moves to remove her from Congress.
“I am sorry Mr. @realDonaldTrump. I am for real, you can’t #MuslimBan us from Congress!” Omar tweeted Sunday.
I am sorry Mr. @realDonaldTrump 🎶

Interestingly, it was the Minnesota Democrats, not Trump, who tried to oust Omar from Congress following her slew of anti-Semitic remarks.
“There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it. There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her,” said state Sen. Ron Latz (D) on Thursday.
“I’d be pretty uncomfortable supporting Rep. Omar right now, given what I’ve learned about her since the election and given her apparent inability to stop insulting Jews.”
The “Muslim ban” Omar mentions was actually a travel ban based on the Obama administration’s assessment of Middle East countries, and was later upheld by the Supreme Court.
There never was a #MuslimBan. It was a #TravelBan based on a security assessment done by @BarackObama administration and then reconfirmed. The #SCOTUS agreed. How our system works. https://t.co/nAFCdN9qSN

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempted to quell discontent from her party’s leadership over Omar’s comments, saying that she “doesn’t understand” her underlying anti-Semitic tropes, such as “it’s all about the Benjamins” when it comes to support of Israel.
“The incident that happened with, I don’t think our colleague is anti-Semitic, I think she has a different experience in the use of words, doesn’t understand that some of them are fraught with meaning, that she, what, didn’t realize,” Pelosi said Friday.
