Trump 'spewing fascist ideology': Omar

Somali-born U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar, one of four minority congresswomen repeatedly attacked by President Trump, told reporters on Thursday, "As much as he's spewing his fascist ideology onstage, telling U.S. citizens to 'go back' because they don't agree with his detrimental policies for our country, we tell people that here in the United States dissent is patriotic; here in the United States disagreement is welcome." She was responding to questions about the 'send her back' chants that characterized Trump's North Carolina rally on Wednesday night.

Trump on Thursday distanced himself from the chants that came after he criticized Omar at the rally.

"I felt a little bit badly about it," Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about the chants, which drew an outpouring of criticism.
