Omar cites more death threats against her since Trump tweet


April 15, 2019


Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, March 13, 2019. House Speak­er Nancy Pelos­i (D-Ca­lif.) asked House officials on Sunday to review security measures intended to protect Omar after President Donald Trump tweeted a video attacking the Minnesota Democrat using images of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

WASHINGTON - Rep. Ilhan Omar says she's faced increased death threats since President Donald Trump spread around a video that purports to show her being dismissive of the 2001 terrorist attacks. "This is endangering lives," she said, accusing Trump of fomenting right-wing extremism. "It has to stop."

Her statement late Sunday followed an announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she has taken steps to ensure the safety of the Minnesota Democrat and the speaker's call for Trump to take down the video.
