House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Trump must take down the disrespectful and dangerous video featuring Representative Ilhan Omar.
Omar is claiming she is receiving multiple death threats since Trump’s 9/11 video.
As reported by nbcnews.com
WASHINGTON — Rep. Ilhan Omar says she's faced increased death threats since President Donald Trump spread around a video that purports to show her being dismissive of the 2001 terrorist attacks. "This is endangering lives," she said, accusing Trump of fomenting right-wing extremism. "It has to stop."
Her statement late Sunday followed an announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she has taken steps to ensure the safety of the Minnesota Democrat and the speaker's call for Trump to take down the video.
Soon after Pelosi's statement, the video disappeared as a pinned tweet at the top of Trump's Twitter feed, but it was not deleted.
Pelosi was among Democrats who had criticized Trump over the tweet, with some accusing him of trying to incite violence against the Muslim lawmaker. An upstate New York man recently was charged with making death threats against her.
On Monday, Trump took a shot at Pelosi for defending Omar.
Trump had his own words for Pelosi and Ilhan Omar on Monday:
