President Donald Trump isn’t ashamed for criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., over 9/11 remarks that’ve been condemned as dismissive — and will keep “calling her out and holding her accountable,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Sunday.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Sanders denied accusations Trump’s twitter response incites violence against Omar and other Muslims.

“He's not trying to incite violence against anybody, he's speaking out against it,” Sanders asserted, adding: “If she continues to do that the president will continue to call her out, call her out by name and he's not going to be ashamed nor should he be.”

 “The only shame … I see in this is Democrats and others aren't standing up and taking the same hard-line that the president is,” Sanders said, calling the 9/11 terror attacks “one of the most horrific moments in American history.”

“And for her to talk about it in such a dismissive way is frankly disgusting and abhorrent, and glad the president is calling her out and holding her accountable for it,” she said.
