Members of the liberal Women's March group have launched a campaign calling for Facebook and Twitter to ban President Donald Trump over his criticism of radical Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) remarks downplaying 9/11, in which she described the attacks as "some people did something."

On Saturday, Women's March announced it is launching a petition demanding Trump is banned from the two leading social media platforms.

The campaign accuses Trump of “inciting violence” against Minnesota Democrat Omar by tweeting a video that spliced the congresswoman's remarks about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks alongside footage from the attacks.

The video wasn't shared on Trump's Facebook page, however.

Since President Trump posted the video on Friday, it has gone viral across social media, amassing over 10 million views in just three days, at time of press.

“The president will not stop,” the petition reads.

"He will continue to issue hateful messages from the White House.

"But you can stop him from issuing those messages on your platforms.

"Do the right thing. Suspend Trump from Twitter and Facebook."

According to CDN, Women’s March coupled the petition with a fundraising pitch Saturday in an email from co-founder Linda Sarsour, who claimed that Trump “is inciting violence against a Black Muslim sitting member of Congress, putting her life at risk.”

The Women’s March petition echoed language from Democrats, who have also accused the president of “inciting violence” by tweeting the video.

“The President is inciting violence against a sitting Congresswoman—and an entire group of Americans based on their religion,” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted.

“It’s disgusting. It’s shameful. And any elected leader who refuses to condemn it shares responsibility for it.”

Meanwhile, an organization with links to terrorism, that's backed by freshman lawmaker Omar, is organizing an anti-Trump rally in protest of the president's Monday visit to Minnesota.

President Trump is visiting the state for a business roundtable discussion at a location just south of Minneapolis in the town of Burnsville.

To coincide with the visit, the Muslim rights group CAIR is planning to hold a rally in support of Omar, who made controversial comments downplaying September 11, 2001, Islamist terror attack on the United States during a speech at an event hosted by the organization.

The Minnesota Democrat made the remark during her appearance at an event for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — a group designated by the United Arab Emirates as a terrorist organization.
