Rep. Ilhan Omar offered rare praise on Twitter on Wednesday for President Trump’s leadership, calling his response to the coronavirus outbreak “incredible.”
“Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time,” Omar, normally a fierce critic of Trump, tweeted in response to a list of the president’s actions in response to the virus. “[Fellow radical Rep.] Ayanna Pressley always says, unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership and we are seeing that in our country right now. I have faith that we will survive this as a nation and build together.”
“Finally, we should never let politics get in the way of good policy,” she concluded. “This is a great start and hope others will be part of a united front to push for good policies that will help us work through the economic anxiety the country is feeling right now.”
Speaking of unprecedented: lauding President Trump is quite possibly the most controversial, or at least unexpected, thing Ilhan Omar has said to date, considering her track record of radical leftism, anti-Semitism, and support for sharia.
