Trump escalates Twitter feud with Rep. Omar

Trump escalates Twitter feud with Rep. Omar

Some Republicans have accused Ms Omar of minimising the September 11 attacks, while critics of the president say he took Omar's words out of context to stoke anti-Muslim sentiment.

Trump pinned the 43-second video Friday to the top of his Twitter feed with the caption, "WE WILL NEVER FORGET".

But on Monday, Mr Trump stepped up his attacks on both lawmakers, saying Mrs Pelosi "should look at the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful US HATE statements Omar has made. She is out of control, except for her control of Nancy!" he tweeted. This is endangering lives.

Following Omar's speech to CAIR, the New York Post newspaper ran a front-page headline that said, "here's your something", along with a photo of the World Trade Center in flames.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency Sunday on the sidelines of an Islamophobia conference at Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University, Ahmed Bedier, leader of United Voices of America, said that it was "very unsafe and irresponsible" for the U.S. President Donald Trump to spread misinformation about Congresswoman Omar.

"This past week, Trump has attacked Congresswoman Ilhan Omar by inciting violence towards her, her family and community".

So as thousands of people come together to stand in solidarity with Omar, one thing's clear: Trump's words and actions must not go unchallenged. She tweeted back at Kilmeade and Crenshaw: "This is unsafe incitement, given the death threats I face".

The relentless attacks from the media, particularly from the stable of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, was followed by President Donald Trump tweeting what can only be described as an incendiary video, in which footage of the 9/11 attacks on New York City is interwoven with Omar's words; the attacks on the Congresswoman moved from the obtuse and the absurd to the downright unsafe. "This is something the Democrats have failed to hold her accountable for".

Loughlin and Giannulli face up to 40 years in prison each, but federal sentencing guidelines are closer to a five year sentence . Loughlin became known for her role as Aunt Becky in the television sitcom " Full House ".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she's since taken steps to ensure the safety of the Minnesota Democrat and urged the president to take down the video in question.

Omar mounted a trenchant fightback, tweeting Saturday: "No one person - no matter how corrupt, inept, or vicious -- can threaten my unwavering love for America". Even many of those attempting to show her support are still mischaracterizing what she said, either because they didn't watch the speech, or because they're afraid of taking a stance that might alienate those who didn't.

Pelosi said officials will continue to monitor and assess threats against Omar and called on Trump to discourage such behaviour.

But Pelosi also stuck up for Omar in her current standoff with Trump. "Until the time that you realize the importance of 9/11 as the worst day in American history, I call for your removal from Congress".

Inside at the tax event, Trump railed against the USA immigration system and what he called its "horrible and foolish loopholes".

Also speaking on a pro-Israel gathering of AIPAC, Bedier said that nearly all speakers spoke against Omar.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders pushed back against claims that the president is inciting violence.

Pelosi actually made no mention of Omar in a statement issued from Stuttgart, Germany, where she was visiting US troops and receiving a briefing on US-NATO military deployments against Russian Federation.
