Trump Says Ilhan Omar’s Apology Was ‘Lame’ And ‘She Should Resign’

Published

In a Cabinet meeting Tuesday, President Trump addressed the recent controversy concerning Rep. Ilhan Omar’s recent anti-Israel comments, saying “Congressman Omar, it’s terrible what she said. And I think she should either resign from Congress, or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”

The President expressed doubts to the sincerity of the apology Rep. Omar issued on Monday over the statements. He said, “What she said was so deep seated in her heart, that her lame apology, and thats what it was it was lame and she didn’t mean a word of it, was just not appropriate. I think she should resign from Congress, frankly. But at a minimum she shouldn’t be on committees, and certainly that committee.”

President Trump was referring to the below apology that Omar tweeted responding to backlash from previous anti-Israel and anti-Semitic Twitter comments.

Ilhan Omar’s response to a tweet questioning the U.S political motive in supporting Israel was the beginning of the controversy. She claimed that U.S politicians sacrifice free speech to defend Israel because of some ambiguous monetary incentive, or “the Benjamins”.

Batya Ungar-Sargon, an editor at Forward, questioned Omar’s response, asking who she thought was paying American politicians to support Israel.

Omar claimed that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was doing so.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
