Supporters of President Donald Trump at his recent rally in North Carolina pointed their pitchforks against the Democratic Congresswoman Somalian Ilhan Omar, who represents Minnesota’s 5th congressional district.
“They want to demolish our constitution, weaken our military, eliminate the values that built this magnificent country,” said Trump.
“Send her back,” the new chant for Rep. Ilhan Omar, caught on like wildfire among Trump supporters.
lhan Omar has made waves as an up and coming millennial Democrat with views that are considered “extreme” to the Republican party, but the new generation sees hope and a brighter future.
The rhetoric seen at this Trump rally is reminiscent of when former president Barack Obama ran for the highest position in this country, despite the odds we all know the results.
According to Rep. Omar, the country aspires to uphold, “equality under the law, religious liberty, equal protection, and protection from persecution.”
While Trump defends his tweets, some Republicans and Democrats in the House did not stand for what they feel was disrespect and racist against the four women of color one of which was granted citizenship by this country.
Ilhan responded stating “He would like nothing more than to divide our country based on race, religion, gender, orientation or immigration status. This is the only way he knows he can prevent the solidarity of us working together across all of our differences.”
When speaking to press this week, the President said he tried to distance himself from his own supporters saying he tried to stop the chant. However, video from the campaign rally shows the chant lasting 13 seconds with Trump remaining silent.
