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.”
