‘We are Americans, this is our country’ – Rep. Ilhan Omar

“Nothing this president says should be taken to heart. We are Americans as much as every one else. This is our country. And we are where we belong,” Omar told a handful of reporters outside her capitol hill office where she had introduced a young woman who was about to become a U.S. citizen.

Facing a backlash, Trump on Thursday distanced himself from supporters’ chants of “send her back” after he criticized Omar at a rally in North Carolina Wednesday night which drew an outpouring of criticism from Democrats and some of Trump’s fellowRepublicans.

Omar criticized Trump for “spewing his Fascist ideology onstage” and said her own message is to let people know that “here in the United States dissent is patriotic.”

The freshman lawmaker from Minnesota was one of four liberal lawmakers – all women of color – that Trump criticized as un-American, saying they were welcome to leave the country if they did not like his policies on issues such as immigration and defending Israel.
