President Trump doubled-down on his fierce criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s remarks regarding the 9/11 terror attacks this week; calling the freshman congresswoman “extremely unpatriotic” and “extremely disrespectful.”
The President was speaking with a local reporter in Minnesota Tuesday when he was asked if he had “second thoughts” after he harshly criticized her comments.
During interview w/ KSTP TV in Minnesota, Trump defended his reprehensible tweet about @IlhanMN: "She's been very disrespectful to this country… she is somebody that doesn't really understand life, real life… she's got a way about her that's very very bad for our country." pic.twitter.com/wiSNptg0F3

“She’s been very disrespectful to this country. She’s been very disrespectful, frankly, to Israel. She is somebody that doesn’t really understand life, real life. What it’s all about,” said the President.
“She’s got a way about her that’s very, very bad for our country,” Trump added. “I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country.”
