Rep. Ilhan Omar Stands Strong After Donald Trump Attack
Representative Ilhan Omar says she’s not scared for herself in the wake of Donald Trump‘s battle cry — that she should go back to where she came from — but she’s mighty concerned for, as she puts it, “people who share my identity.”
We got the Minnesota Congresswoman on Capitol Hill Thursday in a pap crush that rivals Kim Kardashian. She told our photog, Colin, Trump is sending a message to people who come from other countries like hers that they are not welcome in America.
Rep. Omar says her message is a direct counter — that people with her background belong in this country and have the ability to serve the country … that America is their country.
She’s clearly touched by the support she’s received from Cardi B and other celebrities who have embraced her.
And, check out the end, as she scoffs at a reporter who asks if Trump’s comments were racist. She makes it clear … that’s old news.
