US Congresswoman, Ilham Omar taunted President Donald Trump, who had recently told her to go back to Somalia by revealing that Speaker Nancy Pelosi ‘returned’ with her.
On her verified Twitter handle, Omar shared photos from the Congressional Black Caucus trip to Ghana on Wednesday and said, “They said “send her back” but Speaker @SpeakerPelosi didn’t just make arrangements to send me back, she went back with me.”
She added that the Black Caucus was in Ghana to commemorate the Year of Return, “So grateful for the honour to return to Mother Africa with the @TheBlackCaucus and commemorate The Year of Return,” she said.
Speaker Pelosi also shared photos from the trip and revealed that she was able to address “Ghana’s Parliament with a message of respect and reaffirming the U.S commitment to security, freedom and justice for all.”
Trump’s supporters had at a rally chanted, ‘send her back’. Their call was reiterated by Trump at a subsequent press conference where he said that Oman and four other congresswomen were free to return to their countries of origin if they didn’t like the way the US was being run.
Apart from Oman, who came to the US as a child, fleeing war in her birthplace of Somalia, the other three congresswomen were born on US soil. Source:punchng
