Ilhan Omar Receives ROCK STAR Welcome Upon Arrival At Minnesota Airport

A group of celebratory supporters greeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) upon her arrival in her home state Thursday night, following a week loaded with controversy and fighting on Capitol Hill.

Omar – who has been the subject of controversy over the last week, following President Trump’s call for her and other “Squad” members to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” and “come back and show us how it is done” – received a star’s welcome upon her arrival in her home state. A crowd of supporters greeted her, shouting, “Welcome home Ilhan.”

She retweeted the video with the caption, “It’s good to be home.”

The warm greeting came in the wake of an ongoing battle between Omar’s “Squad” and the president.

During Trump’s rally in Greenville, North Carolina Wednesday evening, the crowd broke into a “send her back” chant. However, the crowd did not start chanting the phrase until Trump mentioned the lawmaker’s history of “launching vicious, anti-Semitic screeds.”

The president told reporters on Thursday that he “felt a little bit badly” about the crowd’s chant.

“It was quite a chant, I felt a little bit badly about it, but I will say this, I did start speaking very quickly,” Trump said. “I was not happy with it, I disagree with it, but again, I didn’t say that, they did.”

Omar, to the contrary, has refused to express remorse for her past controversial statements. She was given the opportunity to apologize during a Wednesday appearance on CBS This Morning, but she ultimately refused to express regret for her words.

“Oftentimes there are things that you might say that would not hold weight for you, but to someone else, right, the way we hear and consume information is very different from how the next person might be. Nothing I said was meant for that purpose,” she told CBS’s Gayle King.

When asked if she regretted her past statements, she said: “I do not.”

“I do not, but I am grateful for the opportunity to really learn how my words have made people feel and take every opportunity I have to make sure people understand that I apologize for it,” she added.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
