Trump has called for Rep. Omar’s resignation following her tweets about AIPAC. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.
"President Trump on Tuesday called on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) to resign or be barred from serving on congressional committees as punishment for her remarks on Israel that were criticized as anti-Semitic.
'Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress,' Trump said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House. 'And I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.'
Omar apologized on Monday for comments the previous day suggesting that U.S. support for the Jewish state is the result of money flowing from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), an influential pro-Israel lobbying group. In her apology she said her 'intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.'"
