Writing on Twitter, Trump blasted both Omar and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for defending Omar after he tweeted a video on Friday suggesting Omar had been dismissive of the September 11, 2001, attacks. As an African-born, female, Muslim politician, she is an obvious target for the far-right.
"Certainly the president is wishing no ill will, and certainly not violence toward anyone", said Sanders, who called Trump's criticism of Omar a "good thing". "That was one of the most horrific moments in American history, and for her to talk about it in such a dismissive way is frankly disgusting and abhorrent, and I'm glad the president is calling her out and holding her accountable for it".
Democrats claimed the video does not provide context to Ms Omar's 20-minute speech to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (Cair) on 23 March. He called Trump's reported attempt to make Omar a household name a "cynical way to identify all Democrats with her arguably poor choice words".
"First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something, '" tweeted Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas.
Soon after Ms Pelosi's statement, the video disappeared as a pinned tweet at the top of Mr Trump's Twitter feed, but it was not deleted. "It has to stop", said Omar. She tweeted back at Kilmeade and Crenshaw: "This is risky incitement, given the death threats I face". "For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, unsafe targeting of a member of Congress", Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted shortly after Trump's missive.
White House press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied Trump was inciting violence towards Omar.
"This is endangering lives", Ms Omar said, accusing the president of baiting right-wing extremism.
"Violent crimes and other acts of hate by right-wing extremists and white nationalists are on the rise in this country and around the world. We can no longer ignore that they are being encouraged by the occupant of the highest office in the land", Omar said.
One leading House Democrat, Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico, joined in the attack on Omar, telling MSNBC, "Those statements were not only hurtful to me, but extremely hurtful to everyone that was personally impacted by those terrorist attacks".
Noting the similarity between the gunman's views and those of anti-Muslim politicians in the United States like Trump, she cited the rising threats to mosques, schools and individual Muslims.
"Violent rhetoric and all forms of hate speech have no place in our society, much less from our country's Commander in Chief".
But she made explicitly clear that new Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - an emerging force in USA politics who is often simply referred to as AOC - and fellow young progressives elected in 2018 represented only the margins of American society.
