Saying it was “silly” to compare President Donald Trump with former President Barack Obama, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., maintained: “One is human. The other is really not.”
Her comments came during an exchange with a Fox News reporter, who had questioned her about remarks concerning Obama.
Politico had quoted Omar criticizing Obama. She had cited the “caging of kids” at the Mexico border and the “droning of counties around the world” during the former president’s watch.
“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies.” Omar had said. “They just were more polished than he was.”
