From President Donald Trump: “Congressman Omar is terrible — what she said.” To Democratic presidential contenders: “If your question to me is, do I think she is anti-Semitic? No, I don't.” ”She does not deserve the kind of vicious, hate-filled attacks that she's experiencing.” So, who is she? Omar was born in Somalia. Her family fled during the civil war. They were granted asylum in the U.S. and eventually ended up in Minneapolis. Omar went on to become a community organizer. She got into politics a few years ago, when she unseated a 44-year incumbent in the State Legislature. Omar was one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress. “I stand here before you tonight as your congresswoman-elect, with many firsts behind my name.” So, what are the issues that Omar has brought attention to? As a freshman in Congress, Omar criticized the Trump administration's involvement in Venezuela, supported the boycott Israel movement and spoke out against family separation at the border. “We say, not under our watch.” But these days, she's making news as a target of the president. In March, Omar incorrectly stated that a Muslim advocacy group was created after the Sept. 11 attacks. “They recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.” Trump went after Omar on Twitter, sending out an edited video mixing 9/11 footage with her remarks, implying she was playing down the attacks. Omar says she received an increase in death threats after Trump's tweet. But this isn't the first time that Omar has been on Trump's radar. In February, Republicans called her anti-Semitic after tweets that criticized Israel. Omar apologized on Twitter, but Trump still called for her resignation. “I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.” And, he didn't let the scandal go. “She doesn't like Israel, I forgot. I'm so sorry.” So, what's next for Omar? Some say that Omar has been a political gift to Trump, the ideal way to rally his conservative base. And her comments about Israel have split support for her, even in her own party. But it's not making a dent in her fundraising. Omar raised $832,000 in the first quarter of this year for her re-election campaign.
