The Louisville Courier-Journal reports:
Republican Sen. Rand Paul is offering to buy Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar a plane ticket to visit her home country of Somalia to learn to be more grateful for living in the United States.
Omar is one of four congresswomen — known as “The Squad” — who President Donald Trump told to “go back” to their ancestors’ countries instead of criticizing U.S. policies.
“I’m not saying we forcibly send her anywhere,” Paul said in an interview last week with Breitbart News, a conservative-leaning outlet. “I’m willing to contribute to buy her a ticket to go visit Somalia. I think she can look and maybe learn a little bit about the disaster that is Somalia.”
