Trump calls Muslim lawmaker Ilhan Omar 'out of control' in latest attack

Pelosi asks police to protect Ilhan Omar after Trump attack

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.

Omar said over the weekend that she's faced an increasing number of death threats since Mr. Trump shared a video that purports to show Omar being dismissive of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The latest political firestorm around Omar centers on a speech she gave March 23 at a a Council on American-Islamic Relations banquet.

"I think that many of us knew that this was going to get worse, because we finally have a leader, a world, leader, in the White House, who publicly says Islam hates us, who fuels hate against Muslims, who thinks it is OK, it is OK to speak about a faith and a whole community in a way that is dehumanizing", Omar said.

Cair, she said, was founded "because they recognised that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties".

President Donald Trump isn't backing down from his tweets about Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress.

Ms Omar said she had experienced "an increase in direct threats on my life", adding: "It has to stop".

"Certainly the president is wishing no ill will, and certainly not violence toward anyone", said Sanders, who called Trump's criticism of Omar a "good thing".

"I thank the Capitol Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the House Sergeant at Arms, and the Speaker of the House for their attention to these threats", Omar said in a statement on Sunday.

Mr Trump captioned his tweet with: "WE WILL NEVER FORGET!"

Just a week ago, a man in NY was charged with threatening to assault and kill Omar, after he reportedly said "she's a [expletive] terrorist". And assaults increase when cities host Trump rallies.

On Sunday, Pelosi asked House officials to review security measures meant to protect Representative Omar after President Trump's tweet.

- Pete Buttigieg (@PeteButtigieg) April 13, 2019President Trump's personal attack against Representative Omar is vile and shameful.

The president was unapologetic about his attacks on Monday as he condemned Nancy Pelosi for defending Omar and accused the congresswoman of anti-Semitic speech against Israel.

"I thank the Capitol Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the House Sergeant at Arms, and the speaker of the House for their attention to these threats". "The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence", she said.

By Sunday, she had been echoed by numerous 2020 Democratic presidential candidates.

Fox News Channel host Brian Kilmeade said on a "Fox & Friends" segment on Omar, "You have to wonder if she's an American first".

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 USA soil.

In a tweet Friday, Ms. Omar suggested she's being criticized because she is a Muslim. "We are ALL Americans!"

Omar mounted a trenchant fightback, tweeting Saturday: "No one person - no matter how corrupt, inept, or vicious - can threaten my unwavering love for America".
