Ilhan Omar on Trump voters: ‘Ignorance really is pervasive in many parts of this country’
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) on Tuesday castigated supporters of President Donald Trump by claiming America’s problem with ignorance is “pervasive.” Omar appeared on the Nation’s “Next Left” podcast with host John Nichols to discuss various issues, including the intelligence of Trump supporters. “So suddenly you’re elected, and you had this teaching moment. It strikes me that, in watching you, you are conscious of teaching moments and of that opportunity to say something that might cause people to think differently about what’s going on,” Nichols said. Omar said U.S. voters “have a misconception” about refugees and the process they face getting into the United States.
