Rep. Ilhan Omar’s employees have contacted a social media page Twitter and asked then to remove President Donald Trump’s account and a post that cited a claim that Omar “partied” on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Earlier Wednesday, Trump posted a post with a link to actor and comedian Terrence Williams account by which Williams claimed that Omar was dancing on 9/11. Trump stated of Williams’s post, “Ilhan Omar, a member of AOC Plus 3, will win us the Great State of Minnesota. The new face of the Democrat Party!”
The video was later found to be of Omar dancing on Sept. 13 at a Congressional Black Caucus event.
Omar stated the President’s post continued to spread lies that put her life in danger. Omar claimed she had received threats. She appeared on channel Face the Nation on Sunday and generated controversy by not approaching whether she understood the outrage caused by her “Some individuals did one thing remarks.” Instead, she focused on the post-9/11 backlash against Muslims.
Williams deleted his post later on Wednesday. Post has, thus far, not commented on whether it should take action against President Trump, who left his tweetup.
