He called Trump's reported attempt to make Omar a household name a "cynical way to identify all Democrats with her arguably poor choice words".

In the April 12 tweet, Trump wrote: "We will never forget!" and included video of a speech Omar gave last month in which she said: "For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it". "We will never forget!" Over a picture of Ms Omar, who is Muslim, the poster read "I am the proof - you have forgotten".

The poster was widely condemned, including by the Republican party, and reportedly led to at least one resignation.

The president's tweet shows the Twin Towers falling while audio plays of Ms. Omar's remarks during a speech last month. Her family later moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Republican critics said that her comment "some people did something" was offensive to the almost 3,000 Americans killed in the attacks. "And I think on the other hand, they are the best defense of him".

Pelosi touted her own liberal upbringing and accomplishments representing the deeply Democratic voters of San Francisco. However, her purported statement on white, non-Muslim men was entirely fabricated. She tweeted back at Kilmeade and Crenshaw: "This is risky incitement, given the death threats I face". The disgusting and risky attacks against her must end.

Mr. Trump weighed in on Friday, tweeting "WE WILL NEVER FORGET" and shared the video Mrs. Pelosi says is risky. "But to use the office of the president as an attack vehicle. for his market, it seems to have worked".

The clip, which had been viewed more than 9.4 million times as of Sunday afternoon, ends with the words: "SEPTEMBER 11 2001 WE REMEMBER".

The latest round of attacks on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar seem to have started after a video of Omar describing the 9/11 attacks as "some people did something" began circulating on the internet, giving the right-wing media an opportunity to accuse her of belittling the largest foreign attack on U.S. soil. "It has to stop". She has also stated that she has seen an increase in death threats.

Buhari congratulates Netanyahu on Israeli election victory
Co-host Daniel Klaidman asked if she would "be in favor of reducing military or economic aid to Israel?" "I would hope and wish that a diplomatic approach could impact policy".

"Here's the truth", Ms Omar stated in the Cair speech on 23 March.

Rep. Andr Carson, who along with Omar is one of only three Muslim members of Congress, said on the call that he believes that such a security review is "long overdue" and said that the Sergeant at Arms, he believes, has been "too slow" to respond to death threats because the believes they don't have the "capacity" at this point. CAIR had been formed in 1994.

However, all of the criticism was focussed on the phrasing around the 9/11 attacks.

"It's also hard to argue that it's an accident, that this president is once again focusing his ire and his attention on a person of color and a Muslim as well".

The lawmaker has also been embroiled in controversy after criticising United States support of Israel and for speaking out on the Israel lobby, AIPAC's influence on USA politics.

Furthermore, this certainly isn't the first time a politician has used strangely casual language about the 9/11 attacks. "And frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it", Ms. Omar told the crowd.

Fahmy also said that the worldwide rules and values apply to everyone and that "we give individuals right to advocate how they see USA interests and not see it as a threat to status quo".

The very moment it became obvious this strong black Muslim congresswoman would not toe the line, she was always going to be maligned. This produced bellows from the White House, reiterating claims that Omar was an anti-Semite, because Miller is Jewish.
