Ilhan Omar Opens for Bernie, Brings Up 'White Supremacy' And 'Western Imperialism'

At a Bernie Sanders rally in Minneapolis on Sunday night, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) accused President Trump of coddling white supremacy and declared that Sanders "will fight against Western imperialism."

Omar told a cheering crowd at Minneapolis' Northrop Auditorium, "I am beyond honored and excited for a president who will fight against Western Imperialism and fight for a just world."

"Together we are going to send a powerful message with this president," Omar said of Donald Trump. "Your efforts to coddle White Supremacy, to ban Muslims from entering the United States, to call people at neo-Nazi rallies 'very fine people' will fail!"

The crowd began chanting "Lock him up!" after Omar's disparaging and untrue remarks about President Trump. 

"And just as a matter of fact, none of us are going back," Omar shouted at the crowd. "We're here to stay."

In July, President Trump referred to Rep. Omar in a series of tweets where the president asked why Congresswoman like Ilhan Omar don't "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done." 

Members of the so-called progressive "squad" have been taking turns introducing Sanders at campaign rallies. 

Omar's endorsement of Sanders is a break from the rest of her state's delegation which has endorsed Sen. Amy Klobuchar in her bid for president.
