(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) sent out a Tweet after President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address last night saying that Trump’s call for banning late-term abortion was a pivot to “policing women’s bodies.”

“If Trump thinks pivoting from his failed vanity wall to policing women’s bodies and choices is going to help his 2020 chances he has another thing coming,” Omar said in the Tweet.

Here is Rep. Omar's Tweet:

Here is what Trump said in his State of the Union Address about banning late-term abortion:

“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our Nation saw in recent days.

“Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the Governor of Virginia where he basically stated he would execute a baby after birth.

“To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.

“Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God.”
