Controversial Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has blasted President Donald Trump's America during an interview with a Middle Eastern magazine, declaring that living in “ugly” American society is "an everyday assault."

In an interview for Vogue Arabia that was published Friday, the radical Minnesota lawmaker claims that "every day” she is "threatened" and "demonized" due to the "ugliness" that she says is ingrained in the US populace.

Omar, 37, used the interview to criticize the United States and blast its people to the publication's Arabic audience, accusing President Trump of "tapping into an ugly part of our society and freeing its ugliness."

Throughout the interview, Omar didn't disclose the reason why she chooses to live in the United States after fleeing Somalia and claiming asylum in the US in the 1990s.

Since joining Congress, Omar has ruffled feathers on both sides of the aisle.

The Somali-refugee-turned-Democratic congresswoman is best-known for a series of anti-semitic statements in which she stirred up allegations that politicians in Washington DC are being bribed with Jewish money.

Speaking to Vogue Arabia, Omar attempted to blame all of her frustrations with living in America on President Trump.

“It’s an everyday assault. Every day, a part of your identity is threatened, demonized, and vilified.

"Trump is tapping into an ugly part of our society and freeing its ugliness.

"It’s been a challenge to try to figure out how to continue the inclusion; how to show up every day and make sure that people who identify with all the marginalized identities I carry, feel represented,” Omar said.

“It’s transitioning from the idea of constantly resisting to insisting in upholding the values we share — that this is a society that was built on the idea that you could start anew,” she added.

"And what that celebrates is immigrant heritage."

Omar and her family immigrated to the United States in 1995 from Somalia as refugees, settling in Arlington, Va.

Meanwhile, news emerged Monday that Omar is being investigated by authorities following two complaints of campaign finance fraud, according to reports.

On Monday morning, Sinclair reporter James Rosen confirmed that investigators have recently completed their probe into the alleged violations and are preparing to issue rulings on the pair of complaints Omar faces.

The progressive congresswoman is accused of spending thousands of dollars in campaign funds to pay her divorce lawyer and cover personal travel expenses.
