U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar blasts Israel, Trump over trip decision

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar blasted Israel’s travel policies and treatment of Palestinians as undemocratic and unjust on Monday, days after the Minnesota Democrat and fellow U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib were denied entry into the country over their support of a boycott movement.
