ANTI-SEMITISM/DEMS/DHS/STEPHEN MILLER/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump on Tuesday [4-91-19] accused Rep. Ilhan Omar of targeting Jews after she called one of the president’s top aides, Stephen Miller, a white nationalist…Omar on Monday afternoon labeled Miller, known for pushing hard-line immigration and border security policies, a ‘white nationalist.’ Miller, who is Jewish, has reportedly grown increasingly influential on immigration issues in recent days, including the purge of top Department of Homeland Security officials…The Minnesota congresswoman has come under fire for controversial remarks she made about Israel and has been publicly rebuked by members of both parties for rhetoric panned as anti-Semitic. Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, has apologized for some of her statements. Trump has repeatedly claimed Democrats hate Jewish people and are promoting anti-Jewish policies but has himself come under fire for saying there were ‘very fine people’ at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. Several Democratic lawmakers came to Omar’s defense on Tuesday, noting that they had never been labeled as anti-Semitic for criticizing Miller.”
