Democratic small donors back Muslim lawmaker amid 9/11 fight with Trump

Muslim American Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is gaining more support among Democratic small donors in the wake of her 9/11 fight with US President Donald Trump.

The Minnesota Democratic lawmaker in the US House of Representatives, who has been at the center of a controversy over her fight against using the 2001 terrorist attacks as a cudgel against Muslim Americans, is gaining more donations from donors contributing less than $200, Vox reported Wednesday.

Having earned $830,000, half of which came from donors contributing less than $200, Omar is one of the top Democratic earners despite raising only $10,000 from PACs.

PressTV-Ilhan Omar is ‘disrespectful’ to US and Israel: Trump

Ilhan Omar is ‘disrespectful’ to US and Israel: Trump
US President Donald Trump has said Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is "disrespectful" to the United States and “disrespectful” to Israel.

Other first-term progressive lawmakers following Omar are New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with about $720,000 and Michigan Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-) with about $300,000.

Trump has accused Omar of minimizing the 9/11 attacks by using a sentence from her speech and juxtaposing it with a video of the terrorist attacks.

At some point in her speech, Omar used the sentence “some people did something” to describe the terror attack.

The Muslim congresswoman has been receiving death threats in the wake of her fight against Islamophobia after being accused of anti-Semitism.

Some Democratic 2020 contenders have thrown their support behind the Minnesota lawmaker.

“She wonít back down to Trumpís racism and hate, and neither will we. The disgusting and dangerous attacks against her must end," US Senator Bernie Sanders said Friday.
