Omar Suggests Trump to Blame for New Zealand Terrorism

Rep. Ilhan Omar spoke to a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser in Woodland Hills, California, on Saturday and suggested President Trump was to blame for the recent mosque massacre in New Zealand.

“The reason I think that many of us knew that this was going to get worse is that we finally have a leader, a world leader in the White House, who publicly says Islam hates us; who fuels hate against Muslims; who thinks it is okay, that it’s OK to speak about a faith and a whole community in a way that is dehumanizing, vilifying, and doesn’t understand, or at least makes us want to think that he doesn’t understand, the consequences that his words might have,” Omar said.
