President Trump continues to rail against Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar amid the mainstream outcry over his tweet condemning her remarks on 9/11.

In an interview in Minnesota Monday, the president was asked by a local news station about his message calling out Omar’s remark and whether it was wrong due to reported death threats to the lawmaker. The president was unapologetic and said Omar was being disrespectful to the United States.

His comments come after he tweeted a video titled “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!,” showing the congresswoman saying 9/11 was a day when “some people did something” laid over footage of the terror attacks.

Republicans have criticized Omar’s comments on the September 11th attacks as being dismissive of the one of the worst attacks on American soil.
