Trump is now actively and willfully endangering the life of a member of Congress (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump is now posting hate videos of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has come under attack for saying "some people did something," referencing the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
She has already clarified her comment saying it wasn't disrespectful since President George W. Bush even referred to the attackers as "people."
“The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!” President George W. Bush said while standing at Ground Zero.
Still - the president is going after Omar, and in doing so, is actively and willfully endangering her life. She is already being targeted for being a Muslim, and Trump is feeding into that.
He posted a video of her saying the remark over and over, but left out her remark that the terrorist attack was not an adequate reason to limit civil liberties. She wasn't trying to convey the idea that the attack wasn't a big deal. It's a total spin of the truth.

Here were her full remarks, that Trump didn't put in his video:
"Here’s the truth. For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it. [The Council on American-Islamic Relations] was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties. So you can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange and that I am trying to make myself look pleasant. You have to say that this person is looking at me strange, I am not comfortable with it, and I am going to talk to them and ask them why. Because that is the right you have."
