In a series of tweets Friday, the congresswoman called it “sickening to watch people make false equivalences between the open bigotry and hatred of this president and progressives.”
Omar’s comments came a day after House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., called out members of both parties – including Trump, Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. – and suggested they have promoted anti-Semitic language.
“The growing anti-Semitism in our political dialogue is repugnant,” Nadler tweeted. “@realdonaldtrump’s comments about disloyalty are a vicious and dangerous anti-Semitic trope. And the Carlos Latuff cartoon forwarded by @RepRashida and @Ilhan can surely be read for its vile underlying message.”
