quote:She said you can hold their chest out, you can -- 'When I think of America, huh. When I think of al Qaeda, I can hold my chest out.'
Omar has never praised al Qaeda. As near as anyone can tell Trump is referring to Omar's 2013 appearance on the Twin Cities PBS show BelAhdan, which covers Middle East issues. At one point she speaks of a professor she once had in a class on terrorist ideology who would raise his shoulders in emphasis each time he mentioned al Qaeda and their acts of terror.
So Trump lies again, making up Omar's words out of whole cloth. Omar never even utters the word "chest," and the discussion never touched on her feelings about the United States.
Trump says anyone who hates America can leave. The way he complains constantly about judges and congresswomen and his cabinet and the various departments, maybe he'll take his own advice.
