Crowd at Trump Rally Chants ‘Lock Her Up' Over Ilhan Omar
Trump supporters react to Democrat's alleged links to illegal ballot harvesting
Attendees at President Donald Trump's rally on Wednesday chanted "lock her up" after the President took aim at Rep. Ilhan Omar amid revelations of links to illegal ballot harvesting.
Trump first warned of the dangers of allowing refugees to resettle in Minnesota while noting democratic Presidental nominee Joe Biden's pledge to increase refugee admissions significantly
"Another massive issue for Minnesota is the election of Joe Biden’s plan to inundate your state with a historic flood of refugees," Trump said.
"Congratulations, Minnesota. Congratulations. No."
"What is going on with Omar?" Trump asked, bringing up the recent claims of an illegal ballot harvesting scheme.
"I’ve been reading these reports for two years about how corrupt and crooked she is," Trump said.
"Let’s get with it. Let’s get with it."
The crowd broke into chants of "lock her up" in response to the revelations.

Earlier this week, Neon Nettle reported on an investigation launched into Omar's alleged links to an illegal ballot harvesting racket in Minneapolis that was exposed in an undercover sting operation.

On Monday, the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) announced it is “looking into” the explosive “allegations of voter fraud.”
The alleged voting scheme was revealed in a video that was published by Project Veritas that includes a worker for Omar's campaign.
An investigation from Project Veritas purports to show that “Omar is engaging in illegal ballot harvesting and a cash-for-ballots scheme in her district in Minneapolis,” Newsweek reported.
Trump slammed Omar last week for being critical of the United States, asking, "how is your country doing?"
Trump also warned Biden would propose a "700 percent increase in refugees coming from the most dangerous places in the world, including Yemen, Syria, and your favorite country, Somalia."
"Biden will turn Minnesota into a refugee camp … overwhelming public resources, overcrowding schools, and inundating your hospitals," he said.
