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.

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.
