Trump calls on Rep. Omar to resign, says her apology was ‘lame’

Rep. Omar is under fire for several anti-Semitic tweets.

In the immediate aftermath, several called out her for the messages, including a number of Democrats. Democratic House Leadership condemned the comments and called for her to immediately apologize.

Ilhan Omar did as she was instructed and put out a non-apology apology, which she said sorry for her comments and then in the very next paragraph essentially excused her comments.

Democrats have now accepted her apology and will not remove her from any committees, including House Foreigns Affairs.

On Tuesday afternoon, President Donald Trump responded to the controversy surrounding Omar and said she actually needs to resign from Congress and went on to call her apology β€œlame.”
