The Birmingham News reports:
Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) on Wednesday said Rep. Ilhan Omar should go back to Somalia after the Minnesota Democrat called him a child molester while criticizing the Alabama GOP for seeking her expulsion from Congress.
“I fully support the resolution of the Ala Rep Party asking Congress to expel Omar under Article 1 Section 5 of the US Constitution,” Moore said in a statement in which he called the first-term congresswoman an “avowed muslim” and a “sworn enemy of Israel.”
“President Trump was right, she should go back to Somalia from whence she came,” Moore added, referencing a “send her back” chant that a North Carolina rally crowd last month broke into as Trump targeted Omar, a Somali refugee who came to the U.S. with her family as a child.
I fully support the resolution of the Ala Rep Party asking Congress to expel Omar under Article 1 Section 5 of the US Constitution, I was sworn to defend after my graduation from the United States Military Academy at West Point.
President Trump was right, https://t.co/7TfZ53ITsc
