President Trump Calls on Rep. Ilhan Omar to Resign Over Anti-Semitic Remarks

President Trump on Tuesday called on Rep. Ilhan Omar to resign or be barred from serving on congressional committees as punishment for her remarks on Israel, which were blatantly anti-Semitic.

“Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress,” Trump said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House. “And I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”

Rep. Omar apologized on Monday for comments suggesting that U.S. support for the Jewish state is the result of money flowing from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), an influential pro-Israel lobbying group. 

The President said Omar’s comments reveal a “deep seated in her heart” and called her apology “lame.”

WIBC host Tony Katz agrees:

"As for Ilhan Omar, she is an anti-Semite. Mike Pence, he's the Vice President of the United States; you've seen pictures. He has come out to say that Congress should expel her over her tweet."

"...President Trump called on her to resign and people have lost their minds over that comment."
