Donald Trump’s hypocrisy on terrorism

This 14 April 2019 video by United States Democratic party congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard says about itself:

“WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” Trump’s Hypocrisy

Trump’s criticism of Congresswoman Omar is complete hypocrisy. Trump says “We will never forget (9/11)!” Yet it is Trump who has been acting as al-Qaeda’s big brother and protector in Syria, and turned America into the prostitute of al-Qaeda’s biggest supporter–the Saudis, who have been spending billions of dollars spreading their exclusivist, radical interpretation of Islam throughout the world, the very ideology that has been inspiring al-Qaeda, ISIS, and other terrorists to carry out their barbaric acts.

With a tweet blasted out to 60 million people, linking Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar to the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, President Trump has joined a fascistic campaign inciting violence against Omar, one of the first two Muslim-American women to be elected to Congress: here.

OMAR: DEATH THREAT INCREASE SINCE TRUMP ATTACK Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said she has seen a significant increase in threats to her life since President Donald Trump tweeted a misleading video about comments she made about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. [HuffPost]

TRUMP ACCUSED OF ‘STEALING’ $150,000 AFTER 9/11 Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) strongly defended Rep. Ilhan Omar Sunday against a provocative Trump tweet attacking her over comments referencing 9/11. Nadler said the president has “no moral authority” to criticize Omar, particularly since Trump “stole” a $150,000 grant intended to help struggling small businesses after the terror strike.  [HuffPost]

TRUMP CONTINUES ATTACKS ON ‘UNGRATEFUL’ OMAR Trump continued his attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), accusing the legislator of “U.S. HATE” and saying she has “control” over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In the wake of Trump’s misleading tweet Friday about Omar’s previous 9/11 comments, Omar says she has been receiving a marked increase in death threats. [HuffPost]

RACIST PARANOIA REIGNS ON HANNITY While appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Monday, former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik falsely claimed Rep. Ilhan Omar is “infatuated with al Qaeda, with Hamas, Hezbollah,” continuing the stream of Islamophobic attacks from right-wing media and conservative politicians, including Trump, targeting the freshman lawmaker. [HuffPost]

MUSLIM VOTERS WON’T FORGET WHO HAD THEIR BACKS A few days ago, Trump targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar on Twitter for remarks she made during a speech on Muslim civil rights last month. The response from Democrats was divided. Some 2020 candidates, such as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, were criticized for tepid responses, while others, including Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, didn’t respond until days later. [HuffPost]

By Marcus Barnett, Sunday, April 14, 2019: Scottish workers accuse Trump of leaving them on poverty pay.

Donald Trump’s Turnberry staff ‘left with wages under legal minimum on 10 days of shifts’. An employee has told how management at the US president’s Scottish golf resort withhold overtime pay and make them work like “robots”: here.

  2. Trump and the GOP are launching disgusting, Islamophobic, dishonest attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar. On Friday, Trump tweeted out a hateful video trying to misconstrue Rep. Omar’s words, with the potential effect of inciting violence against her. As usual, his enablers in the Republican party are gleefully lining up behind him. Trump’s racism is a core component of his political philosophy and a central part of his 2020 electoral strategy. By attacking Rep. Omar, he’s using the same “divide and conquer” approach that delivered him the White House in 2016 on a wave of fear and resentment toward Muslims and migrants.

    But it’s 2019, and we know that we must stand together in solidarity against Trump’s hatemongering. As Leah and Ezra said in their video, we expect Democratic members of Congress and leaders, as well as the 2020 presidential contenders, to stand up and show that they are 100% behind Rep. Omar in the face of the relentless attacks she is enduring from Trump, Fox News, and the rest of the GOP apparatus.
    Trump Threat Level

    Reminder: Donald Trump is a national security risk and makes us all less safe. Here’s the latest #TrumpThreatLevel (we’re keeping a running list here):

    → The administration appears to be laying the legal groundwork for a new war with Iran, using essentially the same playbook that was used to build the case for a catastrophic war in Iraq. Read more here about how this is just one of many reasons to take away their blank check for war.
    → Trump is now openly urging lawlessness. Reportedly, Donald Trump indicated to an official that he would issue pardons for those breaking the law to deny entry to asylum seekers. The culture of lawlessness that Trump is encouraging makes us all less safe.
