Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has refused to condemn Al Qaeda, the terrorist group responsible for the 9/11 attacks on the United States.

The representative was speaking at a press conference with her fellow “squad” members New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley.

The reporter asked Rep. Omar to respond to comments made by President Donald Trump previously on Monday about the terror group.

“I mean, I look at the one, I look at Omar, I don’t know her, I never met her. I hear the way she talks about al Qaeda.

Al Qaeda has killed many Americans. She said you could hold your chest out. When I think of America, huh. When I think of al Qaeda, I can hold my chest out.

“When she talked about the World Trade Center being knocked down, some people, you remember the famous ‘some people.’ These are people that, in my opinion, hate our country,” he said.

“I will not dignify it with an answer because I know that every single Islamophobe, every single person who is hateful, who is driven by an ideology of ‘othering’ as this president is, rejoices in us responding to that and us defending ourselves,” she said.

“I do not expect every time there is a white supremacist who attacks or there is a white man who kills in a school or in a movie theater, or in a mosque, or in a synagogue, I don’t expect my white community members to respond on whether they love that person or not.

“And so I think it is beyond time, it is beyond time to ask Muslims to condemn terrorists. We are no longer going to allow the dignification of such ridiculous — ridiculous statement,” she said.

That is nonsense because every time a white person commits an act of terror or a hate crime the Democrats demand that President Trump condemn them.

The comments by Rep. Omar followed a press conference by President Trump on Monday where he told “the squad” that they can leave America if they do not love it.

And he continued that theme on Twitter after “the squad” held their press conference to dencounce the president on Monday.

“We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice, and your choice alone.

“This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, ‘some people did something.’

“Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more.

“Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!

“The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” but now they are forced to embrace them.

“That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!” he said in a series of tweets.
