Omar was quick to respond on Twitter.
“First, it was my country and I am a member of the House that removed you from office,” Omar replied. “Second, I fled the civil war when I was 8 years old. An 8 year old does not run a country even if you run our country as such.
First of all, it was my country and I was a member of the House that removed you from office.

Omar has been a US citizen since 2000.
The Minnesota lawmaker has been a favorite target of Trump throughout his presidency, pouncing on her critical comments about Israel as an anti-Semitic and saying at one point that she and three other women of color in Congress should “return” to their country.
Omar has also been a prominent foil for GOP loyalists, who erupted into a “fire her” chant at a Trump rally last year.
The feud between the two comes as Trump also plays for Minnesota in the presidential race, though the former vice president Joe BidenJoe BidenJoe Biden Seeks to Expand Election Battlefield to Country Trump Trump puts Supreme Court fight at the center of Ohio rally Special Advocate investigating DeVos for possible Hatch violation He’s still expected to win the Gopher State, and Omar is set to win re-election in his solidly blue district that represents Minneapolis.
