President Donald Trump has kept up the pressure on Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., for her anti-Israel positions and questioning who led the 9/11 terrorist attacks, calling the Muslim congresswoman "extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country."
"Look, she's been very disrespectful to this country," President Trump told ABC-5 in Minneapolis during a visit to Minnesota on Monday. "She's been very disrespectful, frankly, to Israel."
Forget about an apology from the president, he said, despite Rep. Omar's claims she has been receiving death threats for her comments about 9/11, which she adds were incited by the president's rebuke of her positions.
"She is somebody that doesn't really understand, I think, life, real life, what it's all about," President Trump continued. "It's unfortunate — she's got a way about her that's very, very bad, I think, for our country."
President Trump had tweeted out a video of Rep. Omar's comments about 9/11 and he told ABC-5 he has no regrets having done so.
"No, not at all," he said.
