Rep. Ilhan Omar is questioning Twitter on what the company is doing to “combat this misinformation” after President Trump shared a tweet that accused the Minnesota Dem of celebrating on the anniversary of 9/11:
This is from a CBC event we hosted this weekend to celebrate black women in Congress.
The President of the United States is continuing to spread lies that put my life at risk.
What is Twitter doing to combat this misinformation? https://t.co/XdkRVrU7mZ

Here’s the tweet in question, which Rep. Omar said happened over the weekend and not on Wednesday, September 11:
GET THIS WOMAN OUT OF OFFICE
Ilhan Omar partied on the anniversary of 9/11 because she believes “
“Some People Just Did Somethings”
President Trump was bashed for playing golf On MLK day but it’s okay for Omar to party?
RT so everyone can see this

Bernie has her back:
It comes as no surprise that Donald Trump's racism and xenophobia knows no bounds. I look forward to continue working with Rep. Omar long after Trump loses in 2020. https://t.co/IW9i3xZVCe
