Democrats condemn Trump remarks against Rep. Ilhan Omar, colleagues


Doug Mills – New York Times

President Donald Trump held up a photo of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) during a meeting at the White House in Washington on Tuesday, hours before a House vote to condemn Trump's weekend tweets and comments about Omar and three of her colleagues.

Washington – Minnesotans in the U.S. House split along party lines in the vote denouncing President Donald Trump over tweets and comments widely seen as racist that singled out U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar and three congressional representatives who are women of color.

Omar, a freshman lawmaker from Minneapolis, has found herself at the center of an escalating skirmish between the Republican White House and House Democrats. It grew from a series of tweets by Trump over the weekend, in which he said the four liberal congresswomen, who have dubbed themselves "the Squad," should go back to their ancestral countries "and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."
