Ilhan Omar: Trump “openly violating the oath he took” with “human rights abuses

The four progressive congresswomen of color attacked by President Donald Trump responded on Monday afternoon at a joint news conference.

Hawzah News Agency - Responding to President Trump’s racist tweet, Muslim congress women Ilhan Omar said Trump’s behavior represents “the agenda of white nationalists”.

The four progressive congresswomen of color attacked by President Donald Trump responded on Monday afternoon at a joint news conference, saying his “blatantly racist” assault on them is nothing more than an effort to distract from his corrupt administration and inhumane policies.

The Democratic lawmakers, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, portrayed Trump as lawless and condemned his treatment of migrants on the border and deportations, nbcnews told.

Omar, who addressed some of the many explicit examples of Trump’s racist language. She said that Trump’s tweet represents “the agenda of white nationalists whether it is happening in chat rooms or happening in national TV. And now it’s reached the White House garden” and is designed to “pit us against one another” so that he can continue to “enrich [his] friends.” Rather than focusing on “the pile of garbage that comes out of his mouth,” Democrats can “take action” and pursue impeachment, she said, nymag reported.

Omar called it a “pivotal moment in our country,” with Trump “openly violating the oath he took” with “human rights abuses” involving the conditions in which migrants are being detained at the border. She called for his impeachment and accused him of “colluding with a foreign government” in the 2016 presidential election, a charge he’s repeatedly denied.

The congresswoman said she would not respond to Trump’s “ridiculous” claims earlier Monday that she supports al Qaeda.

“It’s beyond time to ask Muslims to condemn terrorists,” she said.

Omar also ripped Trump as a hypocrite for saying that she should leave the country if she’s not happy with the government, noting his campaign was all about what terrible shape the United States was in.
