U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar chatted with others Thursday at Minneapolis City Hall for Mayor Jacob Frey's budget address.

Washington – Israel announced Thursday it will block Minnesota U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar and a Democratic colleague from an upcoming congressional visit after President Donald Trump tweeted that they should be barred.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who previously had approved Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib's visit planned for this weekend, reversed himself hours after Trump's tweet. He cited Omar and Tlaib's vote in the House against a resolution that condemned a boycott movement against Israel.
