Earlier today, Donald Trump announced new economic sanctions on Iran:

And Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar is not pleased at all:
This makes no sense. Sanctions are economic warfare.
They have already caused medical shortages and countless deaths in Iran.
You cannot claim to want deescalation and then announce new sanctions with no clear goal. This is not a measured response! https://t.co/sGWtwXuNDT

OK, first of all:
Is that why you support sanctions against Israel? https://t.co/3HaEuzRPms

Good question. Unlike Iran, Israel is not a serial human rights violator. The Israeli government doesn’t sponsor terrorists who kill Israeli civilians and American troops. And yet, Omar is a vocal advocate for the BDS movement to punish Israel while defending the Iranian regime.
Anti-Semite Ilhan Omar supports and promotes BDS. For those wondering: S stands for Sanctions. But it’s against Israel so she’s down. https://t.co/6hHzvw1Huf

Sanctions are bad.
Sanctions on the Jewish people are good. pic.twitter.com/bC4tJtGcYK

Pretty amazing admission here — Omar opposes economic warfare against Iran but supports it against Israel. https://t.co/x4rAPrDg9u

Guess Israel is different because it has, you know, Jews.
So sanctions are only good when they are against Jews?
You support BDS. You're talking out of both sides of your mouth and REALLY exposing your radical antisemitism.

Her support of BDS is warfare on Jews. Glad we clarified this. https://t.co/Ht7s4iHtXO

Why are you defending a country that executes gay men by hanging them from craines? https://t.co/Fj09u3O1ON

Because she’s a terrorist apologist? Yeah, that sounds right.
Unlike the last guy, Trump isn't going to send pallets of cash to terrorists. Sorry you're upset. https://t.co/eIQGmhwUNy

She’s free to move to Iran at any time. We’ll even help her pack.
