Trump: Ilhan Omar ‘Should Be Ashamed of Herself,’ Apology Not Adequate

Prior to his rally in El Paso on Monday, President Donald Trump weighed in on the tweets Rep. Ilhan Omar got condemned by her own party leadership for.

“I think she should be ashamed of herself. I think it was a terrible statement. And I don’t think her apology was adequate,” he said, per multiple reports.

Earlier today, Omar apologized for her tweets about Israel after the backlash from Democratic leaders, including Rep. Nancy Pelosi, in a statement saying, “Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.”

The comments in question were a pair of tweets suggesting U.S. politicians were being swayed with money from AIPAC to support Israel.
