Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi demanded President Trump remove his tweet criticizing Ilhan Omar. The tweet Pelosi is referring to is a video that fires back at Ilhan Omar for her comments downplaying 9/11 attacks.
pelosi claims that the tweet President Trump sent is the reason why Ilhan Omar is reviving death threats.
Pelosi Tweeted, “.@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.”
Pelosi’s statement started, “Following the president’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces.”
Pelosi concludes, “The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video.”
The reality is Ilhan Omar is receiving threats due to her own actions and hateful rhetoric. To blame it on the President for quoting Ilhan Omar is insane and dangerous of Pelosi.
I would also like to note there is zero evidence released to the public that Ilhan Omar has received any threats. The Democrat Party does have a history of using fake hate crimes in order to push a narrative.
Finally, Pelosi and the Democrats have no room to speak on causing violence with rhetoric. Pelosi herself has claimed she doesn’t care about casualties with people that disagree with her.
