Bernie Sanders supporters broke out in chants of "lock him up" as Ilhan Omar took to the stage and bashed President Donald Trump during a Minnesota rally on Sunday night.

Radical Democrat Rep. Omar (D-MN) accused President Trump of trying to "coddle white supremacists," much to the delight of the crowd.

The Minnesota congresswoman was a guest speaker at Bernie's rally, during which she called on Vermont Sen. Sanders' supporters to put Trump's "cruel ideology in the dustbin of history where it belongs."

"Your efforts to coddle white supremacists, to ban Muslims from entering the United States, to call people at neo-Nazi rallies 'very fine people,' will fail," the "AOC Plus 3 Squad" member warned Trump.

Chants of "lock him up" could be heard as the crowd cheered, before Omar responded to the crowd, saying: "As a matter of fact, none of us are going back!"

"We are here to stay," Omar declared.

According to the Washington Examiner, the crowd's chant was a play on the "lock her up" mantra that crowds at Trump rallies have used primarily when the president talks about Hillary Clinton.

Omar's response line was in reference to Trump telling her and her progressive "squad" members to help fix their broken home countries, and then come back to America and "show us how it's done."

The president's words were twisted by the left to suggest he said they should "go back to where they came from."

A crowd at one of Trump's rallies also chanted for the president to "send her back" in reference to Omar.

Trump later condemned the chant.

The progressive congresswoman and her allies have grown to become the face of the Democratic Party, portraying Democrats as dangerous socialists as a result.

Omar and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Sanders for president last month, along with Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.

Elsewhere during Sanders' rally, Omar pitched that a "mass movement of the working class" was needed to oust Trump and end "Western imperialism," according to News Thud.

“As a refugee who escaped war and persecution as a child, I am honored to stand with the son of a Jewish refugee who survived genocide,” Omar said.

“The acknowledgment of pain and suffering is personal for both of us.

"The fight for human rights is undeniable and when we recognize injustices of the past and present – whether it is genocide against Jewish people, Armenians, or Rwandans, or Bosnians, or Native Americans, or more – we recognize, we realize that that recognition isn’t about punishing our political foes, but leading within a moral obligation.

"I am beyond honored and excited for a president that will fight against Western imperialism and fight for a just world…

"I am excited for President Bernie Sanders."
