Omar (D-Minnesota) has been a longtime opponent of the Israeli government, accusing it of "evil doings" in a 2012 tweet, then suggested recently that there is "political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country", a reference to the powerful Israel lobby.
"I thought yesterday's vote by the House was disgrace", Trump said, "because the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party, they've become an anti-Jewish party, and I thought that vote was a disgrace and so did everybody else if you get an honest answer".
And as far as global relations goes, Ms. Omar is in the finest of company, because one hears reports of French Jews immigrating to Israel in increasing numbers because of anti-Jewish sentiment and a disturbing number of attacks on Jews in the stylish and trend-setting nation of France.
"We are tremendously proud to be part of a body that has put forth a condemnation of all forms of bigotry including anti-Semitism, racism and white supremacy", Omar, who has repeatedly denied accusations linking her to anti-Semitism, said in a joint statement with representatives Rashida Tlaib and Andre Carson.
"If [Omar] was a Republican, this resolution would've been naming names, she'd be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee and we would be talking about anti-Semitism exclusively, singularly and forcefully", he insisted.More news: Marvel Video Games You Need to Play

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) defended Omar on Thursday, alleging that the freshman congresswoman didn't understand the weight of her words when making statements that many people interpreted to be anti-Semitic.
The US president made the surprising charge on Friday as he boarded Air Force One, when asked by reporters about the vote in the House hours earlier. "The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party and anti-Jewish party".
"I don't think it watered down the anti-Semitic language at all, I think it strengthened it", Pelosi responded.
"Something that is one resolution, addressing these forms of hatred, not mentioning her name because it's not about her", she explained.
"Well, I don't know what is in her heart", the strategist said.
Pelosi concluded by pointing out her confidence that Omar's remarks were more innocent than some people were willing to take them. "I don't believe she meant them as anti-Semitic".
