President Trump called-on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from the US Congress over her “deep-seated,” anti-Semitic rant accusing pro-Israeli groups of bribing American legislators to support the Jewish State.
The Commander-in-Chief was speaking with reporters at the White House when he abruptly called on the progressive legislator to step down; saying “she didn’t mean a word” of her written apology.

“Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress. Congresswoman Omar, it’s terrible what she said. I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” said the President.
“What she said is so deep-seated in her heart, that her lame apology -she didn’t mean a word of it- was just not appropriate. I think she should resign from Congress, frankly,” he added.
