Ilhan Omar: Trump is 'Destroying Everything America Stands For'
Democrat argues that she 'loves this country way more than the president'
Radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has attacked Donald Trump in a new interview, accusing the president of "destroying everything this country stands for."
Far-left "Squad" member Omar also questioned the president's patriotism, claiming that she and her radical-left allies "love this country way more than the president."
The Minnesota lawmaker was responding to President Trump's recent blasting of Omar, during which he accused her of entering the US illegally and of "hating" America.
"It’s really also just astonishing to see the way in which he characterizes what love for this country is," Omar said in a Sunday interview on MSNBC's The Week with Joshua Johnson.
"I would certainly reckon, not only Somalis, but myself, the Governor of Michigan and our Speaker all love this country way more than the president," she claimed.

Trump has blasted Omar several times in his campaign trail.
On Saturday, the president slammed Omar in a speech in Muskegon, Michigan.
"Ilhan Omar, who truly hates our country, but she’s one of the reasons we’re going to win the great state," he said.
At a rally in Ocala Florida on Friday he said of Omar: "She hates our country.
"She comes from a place that doesn’t even have a government and then she comes here, she tells us how to run our country, and she hates our country.
"If you look at the House with Pelosi, it’s like they hate Israel, and they believe in Omar who came in here and married her brother or something and came in illegally," he added.
Omar was born in Somalia and came to the US as a refugee in the 1990s and became a US citizen at the age of 17 in 2000.
She accused of entering the United States using a fake name and later marrying her biological brother so he could bypass U.S. immigration law.
Omar’s office has said claims that her ex-husband Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is actually her brother who she married in 2009 so he could move to America, are "disgusting lies."
"Donald Trump’s repeated unhinged conspiratorial attacks on me and other prominent female politicians are not just sexist," Omar continued on Twitter.
"They are leading to frequent threats against our lives. It has to stop," she added.
