Trump just released a new tweet accusing Nancy Pelosi of being controlled by Ilhan Omar after her defense of Omar this weekend.
Trump also called out Omar for her anti-Semitism and “ungrateful U.S. HATE” statements.
Here’s the tweet:
Before Nancy, who has lost all control of Congress and is getting nothing done, decides to defend her leader, Rep. Omar, she should look at the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. HATE statements Omar has made. She is out of control, except for her control of Nancy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 15, 2019
After Pelosi’s defense of Ilhan Omar yesterday, Omar doubled down last night with another deflection, accusing Trump of inciting violence with hate speech:
We are all Americans. This is endangering lives. It has to stop. pic.twitter.com/gwB2kDUIRp

How ridiculous. As The Daily Wire points out…
Omar conveniently did not include that fact that the analysis of the alleged hate crimes noted that “the researchers do not suggest that Trump directly caused any of these crimes,” Vox reported.
Furthermore, the study conducted by the Washington Post used “reported hate crimes” in its analysis but did not indicate whether those “reported hate crimes” resulted in criminal charges or if they were merely allegations that went unsolved. It is also worth noting that there have been multiple examples of fake crimes that have been blamed on Trump supporters and recent research has found more than 400 of examples of fake hate crimes reported throughout the U.S. in recent years.
In all of this, Omar refuses to apologize for her own offensive comments.
According to Ben Weingarten, Omar’s tweet a way of trying to silence her critics:
Omar’s rhetoric/propaganda, meant to stifle/chill dissenting opinion, is straight from the Islamist playbook whether she knows it or not — and all the more relevant given subject matter delivered in front of CAIR. Either way it fits perfectly w/ Left’s goal to shut up non-progs https://t.co/KfiUKOek3y

Here’s a couple other good responses:
"Some people said some things, and mean words incite violence! Also, anyone who criticizes me is an anti-American racist who needs to be stopped…somehow. I'm not saying how, I'm just throwing the idea out there." https://t.co/AU7qcQsCTo

The problem is the idiotic original statement.
Don’t make the idiotic original statement – and @realDonaldTrump and no one else will have anything to which to respond.
Man, the Congressional Hamas Caucus is a blast. https://t.co/iluStJ3zrS
