BOOKER BACKS OMAR: Booker Calls Trump’s Criticism of Omar’s 9/11 Speech ‘Outrageously Unacceptable’

Sen. Cory Booker publicly defended Rep. Ilhan Omar’s controversial remarks regarding the 9/11 terror attacks Monday; calling President Trump’s criticism of her comments “outrageously unacceptable.”

“She gave a speech where the President has pounced on words in a way that is outrageously unacceptable. It’s not only inspiring death threats against her, but it’s deepening the worst types of hatred and bigotry and this is unacceptable,” said Booker.

Rep. Omar found herself the center of a national controversy last week after she flippantly referred to the September 11th terror attacks that took the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans as “some people” who “did something.”
