“Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive,” Pelosi said in her statement, which called on Omar to apologize.
Pelosi’s statement was met with approval from Republicans.
“Something I never thought I’d say: Bravo Nancy!” Sen Ted. Cruz (R-TX) exclaimed.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) said that Republicans should be thanking the Speaker.
“When they’re right, let’s thank them,” Huckabee said in a tweet. “Kudos to Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats from calling out out the reprehensible anti-Semitic remarks.”

When they’re right, let’s thank them. Kudos to @SpeakerPelosi and @HouseDemocrats for calling out the reprehensible anti-Semitic remarks by @IlhanMN & I sincerely applaud Dem leadership for not excusing her bigoted and hateful comments toward @Israel# p #11_16 # ad skipped = true #

You can say whatever you want about Speaker Pelosi and I do. But we need these old guard Democrats as the new ones are frightening. Dem leaders condemn Rep. Omar for ‘anti-Semitic’ language https://t.co/n3ExFOXZ4f #FoxNews# p #14_16 # ad skipped = true #
