Trump announces special visit to Omar’s district next month and she’s not pleased

In October, President Donald Trump will be visiting the Minneapolis district being represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

And while beset with marital problems, rumors of affairs and claims she may have married her brother to skirt immigration laws, Omar took time to notice.

On Thursday, the Trump 2020 campaign announced a Keep America Great rally at the 20,000 seat Target Center in Minneapolis on October 10.

“Minnesota is booming thanks to President Trump and jobs are coming back to the state,” Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said in a release.

“Since President Trump’s election, Minnesota has added 54,500 new jobs including 3,000 new manufacturing jobs, while President Obama lost 5,200 manufacturing jobs,” he continued. “President Trump has delivered on his promises, and he looks forward to celebrating those successes with the great men and women of Minnesota.”

Minnesota and Illinois were the only Midwestern states that voted for Hillary Clinton over Trump, with Clinton getting 46.4% of the vote in Minnesota, compared to 44.9% for Trump — a difference of 44,593 votes.

As seen in other Democrat-run cities, local officials are eager to speak for the entire population in denouncing the president — even as tens of thousands turn out for his rallies.

Minneapolis was no exception, as Democratic mayor Jacob Frewy released a heavily biased political statement about what the “entire city” will do in response to Trump’s rally:

“Under ordinary circumstances, it would be an honor to welcome a sitting President of the United States to Minneapolis and to showcase all our city has to offer on the national stage. But these aren’t ordinary circumstances. Since taking office President Trump’s actions have been reprehensible and his rhetoric has made it clear that he does not value the perspectives or rights of Minneapolis’ diverse communities.

“On October 10, our entire city will stand not behind the President, but behind the communities and people who continue to make our city – and this country – great.”

Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress in 2018, responded to the news that the president was coming to town by telling him he wasn’t welcome — after saying Minnesota “welcomes everyone with open arms.”

The irony apparently being lost on the notorious anti-Semitic Democrat.

“Our beautiful state welcomes everyone with open arms. But to be clear: we will continue to reject you and your campaign of lies and bigotry,” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Carnahan, chairwoman of the Minnesota GOP, welcomed the president.

“We are excited to welcome [President Trump] back to Minnesota. The President visits on October 10th. Get ready Minnesota and Minneapolis! #KAG2020,” Carnahan tweeted.

Setting aside toxic posts on the left, here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
