Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar hit back at President Trump saying she ‘loves this country’ more than the president does after he accused her of entering the US illegally and of ‘hating’ America, adding his words lead to death threats. (If only!)
Daily Mail The President denigrated Omar in a speech in Muskegon, Michigan on Saturday. ‘Ilhan Omar, who truly hates our country, but she’s one of the reasons we’re going to win the great state,’ he said.
At a rally in Ocala Florida on Friday he said on Omar: ‘She hates our country. She comes from a place that doesn’t even have a government and then she comes here, she tells us how to run our country, and she hates our country.’

‘Donald Trump’s repeated unhinged conspiratorial attacks on me and other prominent female politicians are not just sexist,’ Omar continued on Twitter. ‘They are leading to frequent threats against our lives. It has to stop,’ she added.
On Saturday she also condemned Trump’s jabs saying: ‘He is unraveling. What you are witnessing is the weakest expression of strength. It’s similar to the final acts of fallen dictators. We will outlast him because our stronger.’
