Ilhan Omar has already gained much attention from the officials withing the Trump’s administration and the other who are not in the administration. The reason is her sharp criticism which she offered in case of Israel as she maintained that the money was being funded by the Israel for sake of swaying the politics of America. She alleged that some circles in the American politics were using money from the Israel lobby to get their tasks accomplish. This resulted into an ire and people from almost all the circles started to criticise the congresswoman.
Recently, she released another controversial statement, during an interview which was published in the press, as she said on Friday that living under the administration of Trump was an everyday assault. Ilhan Omar is very much critical of the policies which support Israel. She must not be feeling welcoming of the Trump’s decision to declare Golan Heights as a part of the Israel, a territory which is disputed. This particular Trump’s decision has also brought down ire in the Gulf countries as they have issued a joint statement that they don’t admit the Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights. The gulf countries still call it a disputed territory.
It’s an everyday assault. Every day, a part of your identity is threatened, demonized, and vilified. Trump is tapping into an ugly part of our society and freeing its ugliness. It’s been a challenge to try to figure out how to continue the inclusion; how to show up every day and make sure that people who identify with all the marginalized identities I carry, feel represented. (said Ilhan Omar in the interview)
Ilhan Omar also alleged that the administration is more interested in resisting the values her group shares rather then upholding and implementing those values. This particular interview of Ilhan is going to bring more ire towards her way, it’s however yet unclear the stance of Democrats on her statement.
