Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar called national campaign events for President Donald Trump "Klan rallies," according to the Washington Examiner.
During a Washington Post interview, Omar claimed she'd been repeatedly criticized by the president.
"On a personal level, I have gotten accustomed to standing up to bullies in my life, and so on a personal level, it hasn’t really impacted me besides having my children be exposed to it," Omar said. "And you know, for the last two months of this election cycle, waking up every single morning to text messages from my siblings asking if I was safe because he chose to speak about me at every single rally, didn’t really matter where he was, sometimes multiple times in a day, as he held his Klan rallies throughout the country.”
In response to Omar's comments, Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller tweeted, "Ladies and gentlemen, your 2020 Democratic Party."
In September, Trump said to a crowd in Pennsylvania, "How about Omar of Minnesota? We're going to win the state of Minnesota because of her, they say. She's telling us how to run our country. How did you do where you came from? How's your country doing?"
At the time, Omar responded with a tweet, "Firstly, this is my country & I am a member of the House that impeached you. Secondly, I fled a civil war when I was 8. An 8-year-old doesn't run a country even though you run our country like one."
