So where are the Democrats on this?
Where is the condemnation of Omar’s anti-semitic comments?
Can you imagine the uproar they would have already caused if this were a Republican?
But since it’s a Democrat speaking AGAINST Israel in what have widely been labeled wildly anti-semitic comments, I’m just hearing crickets from the Left.
Oh well, good thing we have the voice of reason himself, President Trump!
In his press conference today, he went on record and said in no uncertain terms he feels she should resign from Congress….or at the very least resign from her committee.
Mr. Trump did not hold back, calling her apology fake and phony and not heartfelt.
You can watch the whole thing below:
If you want to see the entire press conference, I've got that for you too.
Trump's comments on Omar start at about the 3:00 minute mark, but the whole thing is really good, including Trump's comments on the Border Wall deal currently pending in CONgress.
Take a look:
Here's more on Trump's comments, from The Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump criticized Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar on Monday night for her tweet accusing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) of buying pro-Israel support from members of Congress.
“I think she should be ashamed of herself. I think it was a terrible statement and I don’t think her apology was adequate,” Trump said to the pool reporter on Air Force One.
When asked what Omar should say, the president responded, “She knows what to say.”
On Sunday night, the Minnesota congresswoman suggested that members of Congress only support Israel because of “the Benjamins.” Her comments were condemned by members on both sides of the aisle, including House Speaker Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Omar apologized after the widespread condemnation.
“Anti-Semitism is real, and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole,” her statement reads.
And from MSN:
President Trump on Tuesday called on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) to resign for comments on Israel that were criticized as anti-Semitic.
"I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee," Trump said of the freshman lawmaker.
Omar apologized on Monday for suggesting that U.S. support for a Jewish state is the result of money flowing from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, an influential pro-Israel lobbying group.
The comments were quickly condemned by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democratic leaders.
The president said Omar's comments are "deep seeded in her heart" and called her apology "lame."
Trump was similarly critical of Omar on Monday night but had stopped short of calling on the congresswoman to step down.
"I think she should be ashamed of herself," Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One.
Asked at the time what an appropriate response would be for Omar, Trump said, "She knows what to say."
Omar prompted criticism from members of both major parties on Sunday evening when she retweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald's response to a story about House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) promising "action" toward the Minnesota lawmaker and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) over their alleged anti-Semitism.
She captioned that retweet with the message, "It's all about the Benjamins baby," referring to money.
Asked who she "thinks is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel," Omar replied "AIPAC!" referencing the pro-Israel lobbying group.
