Trump slammed for using 9/11 footage against Ilhan Omar

US President Donald Trump is accused of inciting violence and dividing Americans after a tweet attacking the Muslim congresswoman.

    US President Donald Trump is facing accusations that he has put the life of a Muslim congresswoman at risk through one of his tweets.

    Trump selectively quoted Ilhan Omar, making it look like she was downplaying the 9/11 attacks.

    Disapproving of Trump's remark, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, "Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the president's explicit attack today. Ilhan Omar's life is in danger."

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
