'Ilhan Omar is impacting conversation of politics in US'

  • Pelosi asks police to protect Ilhan Omar after Trump attack

However, in referring to the 9/11 attacks as "something" that "some people did", she invoked the wrath of the president.

"This is endangering lives", she said, accusing Mr Trump of fomenting right-wing extremism.

Trump, who will be visiting Omar's Minneapolis congressional district Monday where he'll be attending a nearby tax roundtable event, stood by his criticism of the congresswoman in a Monday morning tweet calling her "out of control, except for her control of Nancy" Pelosi.

As the spotlight falls on Somali-American Ilhan Omar, the first African refugee in the U.S. Congress, so are the death threats against her after U.S. President Donald Trump's relentless attacks on her.

Sanders claim that Omar was just being "critical of a right-wing government in Israel" is a lie.

There has been a sustained attempt by mainstream members of the Democratic Party to sideline Omar and turn her into a persona non grata within the establishment and among Americans at large. In contrast to Omar, the Republican and Democratic Parties are hard to tell apart. "It's absolutely abhorrent the comments that she continues to make and has made and they look the other way".

Many critics said her use of "some people did something" minimized the impact of the terror attacks.

On Monday at the London School of Economics and Political Science, Pelosi said: "I don't think any president of the United States should use the tragedy of 9/11 as a political tool".

Trump is also going after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The latest smear campaign is just one of many. "President Trump must take down his disrespectful and risky video".

"It sends the message Omar is an important figure; she is having an impact on the conversation of politics in Washington and it also is a message that he [Trump] feels threatened by her, or by her politics and existence", Bedier asserted.

While many have likewise "admonished" Pelosi for failing to mention Omar by name in her chastisement of Trump (at least initially), the outrage over Pelosi's purported cowardice belies the fact that most of the disgust for Trump has little to do with protecting Omar and more to do with the politics of spectacle that has become the lifeblood of the American news cycle.

Several prominent Democrats, including presidential Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, condemned Trump's tweet, saying he was inciting racism and violence towards Omar with the video.

"I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life - many directly referencing or replying to the president's video", Omar tweeted in a statement.

Numerous members had spoken to Omar in recent days. If they did, would it matter?

The controversy arose after Omar delivered a 20-minute address to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) shortly after the New Zealand mosque attacks in March.

Even as Congress is on recess for the coming fortnight, Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee is expected today to serve a "friendly" subpoena to President Trump's accounting firm, Mazars USA, to glean financial information dating back 10 years.
