Pelosi Demands President Trump Take Down His Tweet Exposing Ilhan Omar

Sunday, house speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded President Trump delete his video tweet.

.@realDonaldTrump’s dangerous video must be taken down. I have spoken with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Rep. @Ilhan Omar, her family & her staff. They will continue to monitor & address the threats she faces.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Saturday blasted President Trump, claiming that the commander-in-chief was threatening the safety of Rep. Ilhan Omar, after he tweeted an edited video of 9/11 footage attacking the Minnesota Democrat.

“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence.  The president shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack,” tweeted Pelosi. “It is wrong for the president, as commander-in-chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe.”

Trump’s tweet included video of Omar, at a March 23 fundraising event, talking about the establishment of the Council on American-Islamic Relations after 9/11—before cutting to footage of the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

In Omar’s now-frequently-invoked remarks, the Somali-born U.S. citizen said CAIR was “founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

“Some people did something?” the video asks. “September 11, 2001. We remember.” In his tweet, Trump added: “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”
