Trump: 'Ungrateful' Ilhan Omar 'Controls' Nancy Pelosi
President blasts Democratic House speaker over 'U.S. HATE statements Omar has made'
President Donald Trump has blasted Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her failure to reprimand radical Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her "U.S. HATE statements," saying the controversial congresswoman is in "control" of the Democrat leader.
Trump accused Pelosi of "losing control of Congress," and said the top Dem is "getting nothing done" because she is instead choosing to "defend her leader, Rep. Omar."
“Before Nancy, who has lost all control of Congress and is getting nothing done, decides to defend her leader, Rep. Omar, she should look at the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. HATE statements Omar has made,” the president wrote on Twitter.
“She is out of control, except for her control of Nancy!”

“WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” Trump wrote in the video clip that included news footage of the 2001 terror attacks on the Twin Towers in New York City.

Pelosi complained that Trump’s video put Omar in danger.
“The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger,” she said.
“President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video.”
In response to Trump's video, members of the liberal Women's March group have launched a campaign calling for Facebook and Twitter to ban the president from their platforms.
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.
Since President Trump posted the video on Twitter Friday, it has gone viral across social media, amassing over 10 million views in just three days, at time of press.
Trump didn't upload the video to Facebook, however.
