Trump wishes 'no ill will' with Tweet on Muslim lawmaker: White House
President Donald Trump did not want any harm in his Twitter post that criticized Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar's comments about the September 11 attacks, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Sunday.
“Certainly President is wishing no ill will, certainly not violence towards anyone,” Sanders told broadcaster ABC News’ “This Week” show. “But the President is absolutely and should be calling out the congresswoman for her, not only one-time, but history of antisemitic comments,” she said.
On Saturday, Trump tweeted a video that indicated that Omar, the United States representative in Minnesota, had rejected the September 11, 2001 attacks. The video posted September 11 news clips with a clip of a speech Omar made last time. The month in which the attack was described as "some people did something."
In her address to a group of Muslim civil rights conference, Omar said Muslims had “lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.”
Sarah Sanders called Omar’s comments “disgraceful and unbefitting,” She wondered what she saw as the Democrats' lack of action on the issue. "I think it's good that the president is calling for these comments and the big question is why Democrats do not do that," she said.
