U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar proposed a resolution this week supporting the right to boycott Israel, likening the boycott of the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union
Omar’s resolution seeks to push back against U.S. laws banning the boycott of Israel and affirms the right of Americans to organize boycotts of foreign countries if they so wish.
While the resolution doesn’t explicitly name Israel or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns the Jewish state.
Trump supporters welcomed the president’s renewed attack on the Democratic congresswoman, who is Muslim and fled to the United States as a refugee from Somalia.
At a North Carolina rally, supporters yelled “send her back,” referring to Omar and cheered on his comments about the squad of progressive Democratic congresswomen.
The president’s supporters chanted “send her back,” in reference to Trump’s earlier suggestion that Omar and other Democrats “go back” to the countries they came from.
In response, many public figures and elected officials pledged their support for OmarVideo via @thedailybeast

There was no room for mistakes, mishaps or misinterpretation – the whole thing was heavily scripted with the leader of the ‘free world’ sticking to it with the aid of a telempropter like glue. And it worked.
Earlier during the day Trump said he was ‘cherishing’ and ‘enjoying’ the race war he wged against 4 black congresswomen – ‘The Squad’.
