Attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar Rooted in Belief “America is for White People”

On Thursday, President Trump attempted to distance himself from the racist chant of “send her back” about Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar at a Trump campaign rally Wednesday in North Carolina.

The chants rang across the rally in response to Trump’s own verbal attack against the congresswoman. He did nothing to intervene.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives narrowly passed a resolution condemning Trump’s racist remarks against Congressmembers Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. (The Squad.)
