Omar blames President Trump and his allies for rise in violence against Muslims and Jews

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) blamed President Trump and his administration for the surge in violence against Muslims and Jews and said Islamophobia and anti-Semitism are "two sides of the same coin of bigotry," Newsweek reported. 

Her address: Speaking before a crowd of over 100 people at an event organized by Black Lives Matter on Tuesday, Omar ramped up her attacks on President Trump and his administration.

“The occupant of the White House...and his allies are doing everything that they can to distance themselves and misinform the public from the monsters that they created that is terrorizing the Jewish community and the Muslim community,” Omar said.

“Because when we talk about anti-Semitism, we must also talk about Islamophobia. It is two sides of the same coin of bigotry,” added Omar, who herself has been denounced for anti-Semitic rhetoric.

“This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people. This is not going to be the country of the few. This is going to be the country of the many.”
