Ilhan Omar: They said ‘send her back’ but Speaker didn’t just make arrangements, but went back with me

News

US Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar posted pictures with the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on her Twitter and Instagram Thursday to troll the US President Donald Trump and his supporters for chanting “send her back” at one of Trump’s rallies, reported the TIME.

“They said ‘send her back’ but Speaker didn’t just make arrangement to send me back, she went back with me,” freshman congresswoman wrote on her social media.

Omar and Pelosi along with other US Representatives attended Ghana as as part of a Congressional trip to Africa in order to commemorate the 400th anniversary of American slave trade.

Last month President Trump attacked four congresswomen, including Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib, all of whom are women of colour mostly born in the US, and told them they could “go back” to their countries of origin if they didn’t like it in the US. President’s comments were officially condemned by the House of Representatives.
