Roll Call reports:
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., knocked the president in a tweet Wednesday, highlighting his record of racial and religious discrimination and bucking his calls for her to resign.
“You have trafficked in hate your whole life — against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more,” Omar tweeted. “I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?”
Trump derided Omar Tuesday as having anti-Israeli views “deep seeded in her heart” and labeled her Monday apology as “lame.” Omar’s retort echoed a statement released by the Congressional Progressive Caucus Tuesday night, which mocked Trump as having no moral authority on the issues of hate and bigotry.
