Ilhan Omar Claims She’s Not Scared After Trump Followers’ ‘Send Her Back’ Chant – WATCH

*Earlier today, Donald Trump spoke at the White House and tried to distance himself from his followers last night at his North Carolina rally who chanted “Send Her Back” about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

That chant, which was fomented by Trump himself from his racist criticisms of Omar and three other congresswomen over the past several days.

But what about Ilhan Omar? What about her safety? The freshman representative from Minnesota says she’s not scared for herself in the wake of Donald Trump’s battle cry — that she should go back to where she came from — but she’s mighty concerned for, as she puts it, “people who share my identity.”

TMZ caught up to Omar on Capitol Hill Thursday in a pap crush that rivals Kim Kardashian. She says Trump is sending a message to people who come from other countries like hers that they are not welcome in America.

Rep. Omar says her message is a direct counter — that people with her background belong in this country and have the ability to serve the country … that America is their country.

She’s clearly touched by the support she’s received from Cardi B and other celebrities who have embraced her.
