Old tweets from far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) resurfaced on Tuesday that appears to show them suggesting that their political opponents should be deported, which comes on the heels of the media portraying them as victims of President Donald Trump's attacks on them.
In a tweet unearthed by former Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Tlaib tweeted the following about Trump in 2015: "Deport this a--hole!"
Hikind tweeted Tlaib's tweet, writing: "So Rashida can call for deporting then candidate Trump, but there’s total outrage when the sentiment is returned?! How does this 'standard' work? #DemDuplicity"
Tlaib's comment came in response to then-candidate Trump calling for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. in the wake of the San Bernardino Islamic terrorist attack.
Another tweet unearthed by Hikind, this time from Omar, shows the far-left congresswoman suggesting to an opponent that they should be deported. The context for the tweet is not clear as it was a response to another person's tweet that does not appear to be available anymore.
It is worth noting that Omar's tweet appears to suggest that the opponent told her that she should be deported and that is what Omar was responding to.
"@jworiah1 @stevepratico @bemetor5 @somalisijui we are citizens & can't be deported," Omar tweeted, adding: "why don't we deport you to where ever you came from."
Hikind retweeted Omar's tweet, writing: "EVIDENCE: @IlhanMN told an opponent 'why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from' in 2012!! You can’t make this stuff up! Retweet so her duplicity is exposed for all to see!"
Omar has called Trump racist in recent days over a series of tweets in which Trump said that the far-left congresswomen — if they are going to bash the U.S. — should go back to their countries that have a lot of problems and then come back to the U.S. and show America how to be perfect.
"So interesting to see 'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run," Trump tweeted. "Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough. I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!"
