Controversial Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) vowed to continue being a "nightmare" for President Donald Trump as she received a rock star welcome in her Minnesota district on Thursday.

Omar issued the warning following a turbulent week in which she and other members of the so-called AOC Squad repeatedly clashed with President Trump.

Crowds of people greeted Omar as she arrived at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Many of her supporters were carrying placards backing for the freshman congresswoman for her anti-Trump campaign.

Last week, controversy ensued after Trump said that Omar and three other far-left congresswomen should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”

Others in the "Squad" he was referring to were leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Reps. Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley.

Critics deemed Trump’s comments "racist" and divisive particularly as all four congresswomen are American citizens, with three of them born in the U.S. (Omar was born in Somalia.)

“The reality is everybody talks about how [Trump] is threatened because we criticize him,” Omar told the crowd at the airport, MPR News reported.

“But the reality is he is threatened because we are inspiring people to dream about a country that recognizes our dignity and our humanity.”

“His nightmare is seeing the beautiful mosaic fabric of our country welcome someone like me as their member of Congress,” Omar added.

“We are going to continue being a nightmare to this president because his policies are a nightmare to us.”

According to Fox News, Omar later attended a packed town hall where she pitched the progressive proposal of “Medicare for All” as her supporters gave her a standing ovation.

Before the appearance in her home district, Omar called Trump a “fascist” after a chant “send her back” erupted during a campaign rally on Wednesday.

Trump said he disagreed with the chant.

“I believe he is fascist,” Omar told reporters on Capitol Hill, adding: 

“I want to remind people that this is what this president and his supporters have turned our country that is supposed to be a country that we allow democratic debate and dissent to take place.”
