Conservatives are fuming after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over a Sunday night tweet widely interpreted as anti-Semitic, followed by a criticism of pro-Israel money in US politics. Omar issued a Monday apology, which many have compared to Rep. Steve King (R-IA) – who apologized in January over controversial remarks, yet was stripped of his committee assignments after Congressional Democrats demanded his removal.

President Trump on Tuesday said to White House reporters of Omar: “I think she should either resign from congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”

Trump added that her apology was “lame.”

While some have defended Rep. Omar’s right to criticize Israeli money in US politics, and others have called for her to be stripped of her committee assignment, many conservatives have noted a double-standard among Democrats, who just last month called for Rep. Steve King’s head after he asked in a New York Times interview when the phrases “White nationalist, white supremacist” and “western civilization” became offensive. King apologized and said he was misquoted, yet was still removed from his committee assignments by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

When asked if she’s worried, Omar said “Absolutely not.”
