In response to Ilhan Omar’s backlash at Alabama GOP for seeking her expulsion from Congress, Former Alabama failed senatorial candidate Roy Moore said Trump should send the Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar back to wherever she came from.
The Minnesota congresswoman attacked him and Alabama Republicans after the wrote a petition urging the Federal court to trial her and expel her from Congress.Over the weekend, the Alabama GOP passed a resolution calling for Omar to be expelled from Congress.
She responded on Twitter Tuesday saying, “Sorry, @ALGOPHQ, but this is a representative democracy. I was elected with 78% of the vote by the people of Minnesota’s 5th District, not the Alabama Republican Party. If you want to clean up politics, maybe don’t nominate an accused child molester as your Senate candidate?”
Moore fired back at Omar on Twitter saying that he “fully supports the resolution” to force Omar out of office and that President Trump “was right” to direct Omar and other members of Congress to “go back to Somalia from whence she came.
”The failed Senate candidate was in support of comments the president made last month, in which he encouraged Omar and three other prominent progressive members of Congress to go back to where they came from if they are unhappy in the United States.
