President Trump gave an interview on Monday while in Minnesota with KSTP News. During the interview President Trump doubled down on his statements criticizing Ilhan Omar for her 9/11 comments. Trump called Omar ‘unpatriotic’ and ‘disrespectful.’
Trump stated, “She’s got a way about her that’s very very bad I think for our country, I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country.”
Trump continued, “Look she’s been very disrespectful to this country, she’s been very disrespectful, frankly, to Israel, she is somebody that doesn’t really understand, I think, life, real life what it’s all about.”
Trump was asked if he had second thoughts on his sharing of the video on twitter about Omar’s 9/11 comments. The video showed Omar mocking 9/11 while showing clips of 9/11.
Trump replied, “No. Not at all.”
President Trump is showing he has a backbone by standing his ground with his video. Trump is correct that Ilhan Omar is a hateful person that does not represent the United States of America. Omar takes every stance she can that opposes our country and people.
