Tlaib Attacks Trump for Killing Soleimani, Omar Uses Strike to Solicit Donations
Democrats' tweet came hours after President authorized the drone strike
Radical leftist Democrats Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked President Donald Trump after the news broke that top Iranian terrorist, Gen. Qasem Soleimani, was killed in an airstrike ordered by the president on Thursday.
Soleimani was responsible for killing hundreds of American soldiers while wounding thousands more.
The Pentagon stated that Soleimani was “actively developing plans” to attack American service members and diplomats in Iraq.
“We cannot stay silent as this lawless President recklessly moves us closer to yet another unnecessary war that puts innocent lives at risk at home & across the globe.
"Congress alone has the authority to declare war, & we must reclaim our responsibility & say no to war with Iran.”
The Democrat's tweet came hours after Trump authorized the drone strike on Soleimani.
The strike also killed top Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, who led the Iranian-linked Popular Mobilization Forces.
Fellow 'progressive' congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), joined in with Tlaib by attacking the Trump administration for killing Soleimani.
But Omar did not miss the opportunity to capitalize on the killing and solicited donations for her re-election campaign based on her position.
Omar said she was “outraged” over Trump’s order to kill Soleimani, and she also pushed a conspiracy theory that Trump authorized the strike to create a “distraction” from the upcoming Senate impeachment trial.
Omar wrote in a tweet:
“There is no way to overstate how dangerous this is. We need every voice to rise up and demand that Congress stop Trump from starting a catastrophic war with Iran. Sign the petition → [link] #NoWarWithIran”

When Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar says “sign my petition,” what she really means is go to my ActBlue page and give me money.— Steve Guest (@SteveGuest) January 4, 2020
And yes, Rep. Omar is fundraising off of her opposition of killing terrorists who kill Americans. https://t.co/QdJUbKCsSJ pic.twitter.com/aMUMN0tDV0

The link in the tweet requires contact information, then redirects to a page soliciting donations.
The page stated:
“While the right-wing spreads lies and tries to stamp out progress, Ilhan is fighting to create the America we deserve.”
“They’re going to accuse anyone who cautions against war of ‘siding with our enemies’ or ‘supporting terrorists.’ This is the exact rhetoric that got us into the War in Iraq. Don’t fall for it.”
As Neon Nettle reported in May last year, both Omar and Rashida Tlaib publically supported Iran's regime and Palestinian terrorists attacking Israel.
The two Muslim members of Congress have frequently expressed their support for the terrorist nation.
Last year, Palestinian terrorist groups Islamic Jihad and Hamas fired over 700 rockets into Israel during unprovoked terrors attacks.
Israel responded by firing back, strategically destroying the military capabilities of the terror groups, and killing one of the heads of Hamas.
In response to the attacks, Reps. Tlaib and Omar blasted Israel for oppressing and targetting the rocket firing, people of Palestine.
“'I just don’t believe that when people are being unjustly oppressed that they should let someone else set rules for them by which they can come out from under that oppression.' ~ Malcolm X,” Omar tweeted.
