Days after posting a horrific and dangerous tweet attacking U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar – complete with footage of the Twin Towers crumbling on 9/11 – President Donald Trump traveled to an area near the Democratic Congresswoman’s Minnesota district. It was his his first official visit to Minnesota as President, a state he narrowly lost to Hillary Clinton.

That tweet reportedly caused a spike in the number of death threats the freshman lawmaker has been receiving.

Monday night a local reporter from KSTP-TV asked President Trump if he had any “second thoughts” on the explosive tweet attacking Rep. Omar.

“No, not at all,” the American president responded.

And he didn’t stop there.

“She’s been very disrespectful to this country,” Trump charged. “She is somebody that doesn’t really understand life, real life,” the billionaire real estate mogul insisted. “She’s got a way about her that’s very very bad for our country.”
