Trump escalates Twitter feud with Rep. Omar

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders speaks during a press briefing at the White House

First came the liberal establishment and their conflated accusations of anti-Semitism. "The president shouldn't use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack".

She also expressed concern that Mr Trump's visit to her home state of Minnesota on Monday could lead to an increase in hate crimes and assaults.

A new petition launched by the Women's March calls on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter to remove President Trump from their platforms following his posting of a video which compared Rep. Ilhan Omar's comments about 9/11 with clips of the terrorist attack.

On April 5, a western NY man who told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that he "loves the President, and that he hates radical Muslims in our government", was arrested for threatening to murder Omar in a phone call to her office.

Trump has capitalized on the turmoil within the Democratic Party, insisting that Omar "controls" Pelosi and reportedly telling donors during a private fundraiser that the Democrats "hate" Jewish people.

Omar is an outsider because she brings a perspective that challenges the political mainstream.

However, it's not just those attacking Omar who seem to lack context. "The president will continue to call her out, call her out by name and he's not going to be ashamed nor should he be". She said Muslims in America have lived as second-class citizens for far too long resulting in the founding of CAIR "because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to civil liberties".

"I have had some problems with some of her other remarks, but not - but not with that one", he said.

So, in Sanders' mind, criticizing Omar for the exact words that she said qualifies as "racism", "hate", "disgusting", and "dangerous", while Omar's anti-Semitic remarks do not qualify as anti-Semitic.

If that's enough, perfect, and if not, we can not change it". "Only weak people and idiots bring something like this up". "We see it game by game".

President Donald Trump on Monday continued his attacks on Rep.

Sanders, particularly, has supported the young congresswoman before.

That's what Trump wants, to force Dems to hug Omar ever more tightly.

It comes after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced a new "security assessment to safeguard" the lawmaker.

Supporters of Rep. Ilhan Omar are urging Facebook and Twitter to suspend President Trump's accounts after the president posted a video attacking the Minnesota Democrat. They also have yet to follow up their criticism of a recent Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee policy banning strategists who work for those challenging incumbents in primaries, what they've deemed a "blacklist". This much is clear.

The congresswoman had made an error in her speech.

Referring to her previous controversial comments, in which Ms Omar questioned USA support for Israel, Ms Sanders added: "It's absolutely abhorrent the comments that she continues to make and has made and they look the other way". "The disgusting and unsafe attacks against her must end".

And one has to ask if any of this is surprising? Muslim and American can never be one thing, and 2.

The normalisation of anti-Muslim racism is not something that emerged with Trump.
