Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Trump denies responsibility for ‘send her back’ chant: ‘I did nothing to lead people on’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Trump on Saturday denied provoking the shouts of “send her back” that his supporters chanted about Rep. Ilhan Omar during one of his recent reelection campaign rallies.

“I did nothing to lead people on, nor was I particularly happy with their chant,” Mr. Trump said on Twitter. “Just a very big and patriotic crowd. They love the USA!”

Mr. Trump supported his claim by sharing a tweet originally posted by right-wing media personality Katie Hopkins that included video footage of the chants erupting this week.

It marked the fourth time Saturday morning Mr. Trump retweeted Ms. Hopkins, a controversial British columnist who was previously condemned by the United Nations commissioner for human rights for comparing migrants to cockroaches.

“Send her back is the new lock her up,” Ms. Hopkins wrote in one of several tweets shared by Mr. Trump. “Well done to #TeamTrump.”
