Ilhan Omar – complete with footage of the Twin Towers crumbling on 9/11 – President Donald Trump traveled to the Democratic Congresswoman's Minnesota district to hold a rally.

That tweet reportedly caused a spike in the number of death threats the freshman lawmaker has been receiving.
Monday night a local reporter from KSTP-TV asked President Trump if he had any "second thoughts" on the explosive tweet attacking Rep. Omar.
