House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi Called on President Donald Trump to remove a Twitter video of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) referring to the 9/11 terrorist attack as “something” that “some people did.”

“Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video” of Rep. Omar’s comment, Pelosi said in a statement published Sunday:

“Following the President’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces.

“The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video.”

The video shows Omar characterizing the 9/11 terrorist attack as an event when “some people did something”:

“CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) was founded after 9/11 because they realized that some people did something.”
