“Outraged” Omar Reacts to Death of Soleimani With Tweet Storm Attacking Trump

Rep. Ilhan Omar reacted to the death or Iranian general Soleimani with a tweet storm attacking President Trump.

Omar began by spreading a conspiracy theory that Trump is trying to start a war and “needs the distraction.”

She then called for those with congressional authority to step in and stop him, adding “I know I will.”

Omar was responding to a tweet from Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) who wrote “Soleimani was an enemy of the United States. That’s not a question. The question is this – as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?”

Omar then responded to a tweet from Ted Cruz, who wrote:

According the the Obama Department of Defense, Qasem Soleimani was a terrorist directly responsible for the murder of over 500 US service men & women. Why are congressional Dems outraged that he’s finally dead?

Omar admitted she was indeed “outraged” and wrote:

We are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official, possibly setting off another war without Congressional authorization and has zero plan to deal with the consequences.

Omar also tweeted:

They’re going to accuse anyone who cautions against war of “siding with our enemies” or “supporting terrorists.”

This is the exact rhetoric that got us into the War in Iraq.

Don’t fall for it.

Charlie Kirk asked Omar “You are outraged an Iranian murderous maniac is dead? Why?”


Conservative commentator Mark Levin responded to the multiple Democrats including Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff who claimed that President Trump failed to alert Congress prior to his decision to launch airstrikes that resulted in the killing of top Iranian General Soleimani.

Levin tweeted:

1. Trump didn’t confer with Congress?  Uh, Congress has been on recess. Moreover, the House Intelligence Committee has spent months orchestrating a coup against our president rather than doing its job protecting America from, among others, the terrorist regime in Iran.

2. But a president is not required to alert Congress to a real-time defensive military action.  So Pelosi and her ilk can leak and put the military action at risk? These Democrats are undermining our security. We were attacked by the Iranian regime.
