On Monday President Trump traveled to Minnesota to promote the record US economy on Tax Day.
After his rally President Trump was interviewed by KSTP TV. The reporter asked President Trump about anti-Semitic Democrat Ilhan Omar. This was his response:

President Trump: “She’s been very disrespectful to this country. She’s been very disrespectful, frankly, to Israel. She is somebody that doesn’t really understand life, real life, what it’s all about. It’s unfortunate, she’s got a way about her that’s very very bad, I think, for our country. I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country”
Farhana Khera, the President and Executive Director of Muslim advocates, later called President Trump’s attacks “racist dog-whistling.”
Of course, Ilhan Omar retweeted this garbage.
Ilhan wants you to believe SHE is the victim here.
Trump says of @IlhanMN, "she's got a way about her that's very very bad for our country."
That's not a critique of her policy views. It's racist dog-whistling to his base that she is "other," "foreign" — straight from the anti-Muslim hate groups' playbook. #IStandWithIlhan https://t.co/J3Gl4iFrjQ
