Trump Calls Out lhan Omar’s Marriage to BROTHER: ‘Shouldn’t Even be in Office!’

President Donald Trump isn’t one to hold back–and he let it rip today when he called out Ilhan Omar. His comments come a week after a state agency released documents that reveal striking details about Omar’s questionable marriage–likely to her own brother, in order to skirt immigration laws.

Trump said to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House, “I’m looking at this Omar from Minnesota. And if one half of the things they’re saying about her are true she shouldn’t even be in office.”


Omar fired back on Twitter:


Omar refuses to answer questions about whether or not she married her own brother to skirt immigration laws. Rumors that the ccongresswoman married her own brother first surfaced on an online Somali politics forum years ago; Omar blasted them as “baseless rumors.” However, at the time, she said little about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi–her former husband who she was legally married to from 2009. Elmi is thought to be her brother.

Then new questions came to light after a state probe of Omar’s campaign found finance violations, showing she filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi–even though she was still legally married to Elmi.

The fresh state documents also show the lengths Omar’s campaign went to in order to keep the facts surrounding her marriage to Elmi out of the media. At the time, the campaign said that any coverage of the marriage would legitimize accusations from the right wing–however, the campaign was simultaneously unable to dispute the accusations with real facts.

Omar has refused to make her own tax records public, and has additionally declined to answer any questions sent to her by various media outlets.

Screen grabs of 2012 social media posts by Elmi–which have since been deleted–show him holding a newborn baby (on the day after Omar gave birth to her third child with Hirsi), accompanying text calling the baby girl his “niece.”

Omar certainly had incentive to marry her brother, in order to get him into the US quickly. If she had petitioned for a US Visa for a sibling, it would have taken more than a dozen years to be processed; however, since Elmi was technically her husband he was able to get a Visa in under one year.
