Rep. Ilhan Omar says Trump tweet’spread lies that Place my life in Danger’

Last updated on September 18, 2019

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., stated Wednesday the President Donald Trump had set her at risk by retweeting a movie of her dance with a description which claimed it revealed her observing on the anniversary of those 9/11 strikes.

Omar stated on Twitter the movie of her dance was captured during an event hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus within the weekend to observe black girls in Congress.

“The President of the USA is continuing to propagate lies that place my life in danger. What’s Twitter doing to fight this misinformation?” Her conversation lasted.

The movie, which was tweeted by Trump supporter Terrence K. Williams, subsequently seemed to be removed.

The event Omar attended part of the Congressional Black Caucus’s annual legislative seminar that started Sept. 11 and continued until Sept. 15. A co-founder of this Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Adam Green, published a video shot in the case on Twitter on Sept. 13.

The PCCC tweeted Wednesday the tweet encouraged by Trump on Wednesday” is an abhorrent lie which endangers a Member of Congress.

Trump initially uttered the movie Wednesday morning, together with a proposal her behavior might help Republicans win her nation.

Before this season, Trump tweeted that an edited video of the footage of the World Trade Center on 9/11 spliced using a chunk of Omar talking at an event where she suggested that the Council on American-Islamic Relations was created in reaction to the 2001 attacks”because they realized that some folks did something”

Omar explained that video had triggered new death threats against her. This Trump tweet prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to phone Capitol Police to conduct a safety assessment to protect Omar.
