Rep. Ilhan Omar promised to continue being President Trump’s “nightmare” as she received a warm welcome in her Minnesota district on Thursday, following an unstable week in which she consistently clashed with the White House.
Hundreds of individuals greeted Omar at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, many bring placards of assistance for the freshman congresswoman.

Recently, controversy took place after Trump said that Omar and 3 other far-left congresswomen– Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley– should “go back and help fix the completely damaged and crime-infested locations from which they came.”
Critics deemed Trump’s comments racist and divisive especially as all four congresswomen are American people, with 3 of them born in the U.S. (Omar was born in Somalia.)
” The truth is everyone talks about how [Trump] is threatened because we criticize him,” Omar informed the crowd at the airport, MPR News reported. “But the reality is he is threatened since we are inspiring people to dream about a country that recognizes our dignity and our mankind.”

” His problem is seeing the lovely mosaic fabric of our nation welcome someone like me as their member of Congress,” Omar included. “We are going to continue being a nightmare to this president because his policies are a nightmare to us.”

Omar later went to a jam-packed town hall where she pitched the progressive proposal of “Medicare for All” as her advocates provided her a standing ovation.
Prior to the appearance in her home district, Omar called Trump a “fascist” after a chant “send her back” erupted throughout a campaign rally on Wednesday, a chant Trump stated he disagreed with.
