Rep. Ilhan Omar Erupts And Lays Into Trump For His Racist Attacks

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) held nothing back and laid into Donald Trump for his racist attacks and criminal administration. She concluded by calling for his impeachment.

Rep. Omar said:

This president, who has been credibly accused of committing multiple crimes, including colluding with foreign government to interfere with our election, this is a president who has overseen the most corrupt administration in our history and pursued an agenda to allow millions of Americans to die from a lack of health care while he transfers millions of dollars in tax cuts to corporations. This is a president who has said grab women by the pussy. This is a president who has called black athletes sons of this is a president who has called black people who come from black and brown countries shit holes. This is a president who has equated neo-nazis with those who protest against them in Charlottesville.

This is a president who has openly violated the very value our country aspires to uphold. Equality under the law, religious liberty, equal protection, and protection from persecution. And to distract from that, he’s launching a blatantly racist attack on four duly elected members of the United States House of Representatives, all of whom are women of color.of this is the agenda of white nationalists. Whether it is happening in chat rooms or it’s happening on national TV, and now it’s reached the White House Rose Garden.

He would love nothing more than Toth divide our country based on race, religion, gender, orientation, or immigration status., because this is the only way he knows he can prevent the solidarity of us working together across all of our differences. The only way to prevent us from confronting the problems our country is facing, whether it is health care, climate change, student debt, or our endless wars. This is his plan to pit us against one another. This is how he can continue to enrich his friends and distract us from the detrimental policies that his administration is pushing forth. So we can either continue to enable this president and report on the bile of garbage that comes out of his mouth, or we can hold him accountable to his crimes, or we can continue to turn a blind eye of the multiple crimes he’s accused of.

We can stand while he violates people’s basic human rights, and the responsibility — the responsibility that his administration has for the deaths of children on our border. Or we can take action. I have not made impeachment central to my election or my tenure, but since the day that I’ve gotten elected, I have said to people, it is not — if he will be impeached, but when. So it is time for us to stop allowing this president to make a mockery out of our constitution. It’s time for us to impeach this president.

Video of Rep. Omar calling for Trump’s impeachment:

Rep. Omar made a compelling case for how Donald Trump is destroying American values and has brought white nationalism into the White House.

The Squad made it clear that they aren’t going to give Trump the feud that he wants. They view Trump’s attack as a distraction from the issues. They urged the American people not to take the bait, but Rep. Omar made the perfect case for Donald Trump being un-American not the women who are serving their country the House.
