Sunday on MSNBC’s The Week, Rep. Ilhan Omar responded to President Trump’s repeated criticisms of her on the campaign trail, and his claim that Republicans will win the state of Minnesota because of her hatred of America.
“I mean, it’s really a sign of desperation, you know,” Omar told the host. “At this point, this is showing really not a strength but a weakness. His complete obsession with our state and myself really shows us how much his campaign is unraveling and how much they are recognizing that this is the end for them. They are all about to lose their jobs.
“In 2016, he did the same thing,” she added. “He came to Minnesota. He attacked the Somali community, thinking that his hate was going to immobilize and help him win. But in Minnesota, we are greater than fear, and we mobilized to make sure that he didn’t have a chance in winning our state, and he’s not going to in this election.”
Omar wishes. Trump is neither obsessed nor desperate. The Dems are headed for a devastating defeat.
