Rep. Ilhan Omar fires back at Trump

U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar was greeted with cheers and support when she returned to Minnesota after days of inflammatory attacks by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Rep. Ilhan Omar fires back at Trump

At the airport, supporters shouted their backing of the Somalia-born U.S. lawmaker.

She addressed the crowd, saying she would "keep fighting" and calling herself "the President's nightmare" because "his nightmare is seeing a Somali-immigrant refugee rise to Congress." Omar was in Minneapolis to host a Medicare for All town hall along with other Democrats.

Meanwhile, Trump tried to distance himself from supporters' chants of "send her back" at a rally where he blasted Omar, as Republicans worry the incendiary mantra could set the tone for the 2020 campaign.
