Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Nancy Pelosi urges Trump to take down 9-11 video”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called Sunday for President Trump to take down a video he tweeted shaming Rep. Ilhan Omar over her controversial remarks about September 11, saying the tweet has put the freshman congresswoman’s life in danger.

The president’s tweet shows the Twin Towers falling while audio plays of Ms. Omar’s remarks during a speech last month. In the speech, the Minnesota Democrat described the terrorist attack that killed nearly 3,000 people simply as “some people did something.”

“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,” Ms. Pelosi said in a statement 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 California Democrat added.

A video of Rep. Omar’s speech, which was given at an event hosted by Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in March, was recently uploaded to the internet and sparked outrage, including among the lawmaker’s colleagues on Capitol Hill.
