On Tuesday, Katrina Pierson, a senior advisor to President Donald Trump's campaign, shared a meme on Instagram calling Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) a "terrorist."

Omar, who was elected in 2018 and became part of the "Squad," came to America as a refugee from Somalia and is one of the first Muslim women ever to serve in Congress. She has been a frequent target of Republican anger and fear.

The post was apparently deleted, but a screengrab was captured by ABC News reporter Will Steakin.

Pierson previously served as the national spokeswoman for Trump's 2016 campaign.
