Trump Just Called His ‘Send Her Back’ Supporters ‘Incredible Patriots’ During Ramble Attacking Rep. Omar Again
Although Donald Trump tried to distance himself from the people at his Wednesday night rally that went on a racist rant chanting “send her back,” on Friday he defended those same supporters while attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) again.
While speaking to reporters at the Oval Office, Trump fully defended his supporters and called them “incredible patriots” for chanting “send her back.”
“Those people in North Carolina, that stadium was packed, it was a record crowd,” Trump said. “Those are incredible people, those are incredible patriots.”
He then pivoted toward attacking Omar again.
“I’m unhappy when a congresswoman goes, ‘I’m going to be the president’s nightmare,’” Trump said, referring to remarks that Omar made during a town hall in Minnesota Thursday night. “She’s lucky to be where she is, let me tell you. And the things that she has said are a disgrace to our country.”
