Trump rally by the numbers

Posted July 20, 2019

The conservative response to Trump's disavowal was immediate, reflecting concerns among high-ranking Trump administration officials and Republican leaders that the rally had veered too far into "ugly nativist territory", The New York Times reported.

To her supporters, Ilhan Omar embodies the American dream, but to US President Donald Trump and his loyalists the refugee-turned-congresswoman has made clear with a string of controversial comments that she is a risky radical. "We need to all go home ... and listen to what our constituents care about", she said.

Sometimes she offers a positive show of strength.

It looks as though the people she represents in her home state of Minnesota feel roughly the same way as well.

During an event Thursday in the Oval Office, Trump told reporters that he did not agree with the chant of "send her back!" and "felt a little bit badly about it".

Diaz said that a June 23 article, in which Star-Tribune reporters wrote that they "could neither conclusively confirm nor rebut the allegation that he is Omar's sibling", arose from the silence Omar has kept on the issue.

Omar was born in Somalia and immigrated to the U.S.as a refugee in 1995 when she was a child.

On Wednesday, Omar put forth a new "pro-boycott" resolution in Congress "affirming that all Americans have the right to participate in boycotts in pursuit of civil and human rights at home and overseas, as protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution". "I disagree with it".

Emmer also defended Trump, saying he doesn't have a "racist bone" in his body and that the criticism has been "manufactured" by Democrats in Washington.

A day after being the subject of chants calling to "send her back", controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) received a warm welcome upon her arrival back in Minnesota on Thursday.

After years of Democratic activism she won a seat in the Minnesota state legislature in 2016. Just two months after being sworn in, Omar claimed the United States' support for Israel was fueled by AIPAC lobbyists. Mr. Trump has falsely accused Omar of supporting terrorism and minimalizing terrorist attacks.

The full context of the 28-minute interview, originally broadcast on a local Minneapolis TV station, shows she was talking about a USA college course and was making a point about how the Arabic language had been hijacked by extremist groups to mean something negative.

It strikes me as fundamentally weak and lacking in confidence if you think the best way to debate someone is to have them sent away and essentially censored. Let me tell you.
