Nancy Pelosi just called Capitol Police on Trump for one thing he said about Ilhan Omar
Nancy Pelosi is in a furious rampage to take down President Trump.
He truly is her worst enemy.
And she just called Capitol Police on Trump for one thing he said about Ilhan Omar.
The Pelosi-led Democrat Party is in ruins.
President Trump is destroying their entire agenda, and there is nothing they can do about it.
All it takes is one Tweet from the President to destroy his enemies.
And that’s exactly what he did to Rep. Ilhan Omar, following her statement on 9/11, where she simply describes it as “some people” doing “something.”
Trump Tweeted a video showing that clip, followed by video footage of the terrorist attack on 9/11.

In response, Nancy Pelosi went ballistic.
She is claiming Trump’s Tweet incites violence against Rep. Omar, despite the fact it only shows Omar using her own words.
And because of that supposed call to violence, she contacted the sergeant-at-arms for the House of Representatives to request Capitol Police give Omar extra protection.
The Hill reports:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that she spoke with the sergeant-at-arms of the House to ensure the safety of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) after President Trump tweeted a video targeting the congresswoman.
“Following the President’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces,” Pelosi said in a statement.
Pelosi also called on Trump to take down the video, which she called “disrespectful and dangerous.”
“The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi is simply trying to smear President Trump, and is willing to waste law enforcement time and resources to do that.
At no point has President Trump called for violence against Omar, or any other politician.
Trump is simply using a video of Omar speaking her own words, and because people are rightfully angered by the words, Pelosi is claiming President Trump is egging people into violence.
Instead of calling her caucus members to account for their incendiary statements, Pelosi thinks she can use them to score cheap political points against President Trump.
But it won’t work.
