nearvideo President Trump disavowed, win “sends you back to’ singing at the North Carolina rally
Trump says he agrees with the vocals on the progressive democratic Republic of Ilhan Omar: ‘I was not happy with him.’
President Trump distanced himself on Thursday from a chanting “send them back”, which was played during his North-Carolina-rally the night before, and was addressed to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. — he says that he is “not happy” with the vocals.
“I was not happy with it, I agree with him, but again, I didn’t say you did,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on the question of the controversial moment.

He said he felt “a bit bad” about the song and said to speak that he started out “very quickly” to drown out if it has begun, apparently the vocals.
The three-word vocals, and not respond to the trumpet in time, referred to the President of the tweet on Sunday in which he asked why the unnamed “Democrat women in Congress were” not “go back and fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came, then they come back and show us how it is done.”
The President later confirmed he was referring to Omar-who was born in Somalia, before coming to the United States, and the citizens, together with the Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressly, D-Mass. The latter three members of “the team” were born in the United States.
Despite a raging controversy over the remarks, which branded the Democrats and some media as a “racist” Trump went on the attack Wednesday evening at the “Make America Great Again” rally and referred to past controversies in connection with Omar.
“And at a press conference this week, when asked whether they supported Al-Qaeda is our enemy, you are a very serious problem, that we care, but you always seem to come somewhere-she refused to answer,” Trump said. “Omar has accused the United States for the crisis in Venezuela. I mean, think of that one. And she looks with contempt on the hard-working Americans, they say, that ignorance is pervasive in many parts of the country.”
As a handful of people began to shout: “send them back” Trump added: “And, of course, and, above all, Omar, has a story to launch vicious anti-Semitic screeds.”

The President does not have the amount of singing, and returned after a break to continue with his remarks. The singing was convicted of both Democrats and Republicans on Thursday morning. Omar responded late Wednesday Via Twitter: “I am where I belong, with the people in the house and you’re only gonna have to do!”
Asked on Thursday whether he would stop the singing he heard it again, Trump replied: “I would definitely try it.”
