Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.,  put herself in danger through her 'ill-thought-out words," and threats coming her way are because of her comments about the 9-11 attacks and not because of President Donald Trump's tweets about her,  Marc Lotter, the director of strategic communications for President Donald Trump's reelection campaign, said Monday.

"Make no mistake, no Congressperson, no American should be threatened, and no one is inciting violence," Lotter told CNN's "New Day." "What this is doing is showing outrage toward words that should have been better thought out."

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on Trump to take down a retweet that showed news footage of the World Trade Center attacks and a snippet of a recent speech Omar made to the Council on American-Islamic Relations when she described the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center as "some people did something."

"I'm not going to tell the president what he should or should not do with the Twitter account," Lotter said. "We have seen the Democratic Party struggle with Rep. Omar before on her anti-Semitic tropes. This is something the Democrats have failed to hold her accountable for."

Ultimately, Omar needs to retract her statements and "call the Islamic radical terrorists who did this terrible deed out for what they did," said Lotter.
