Donald Trump showed his support for Tucker Carlson Wednesday after the Fox News host said Somali-American congresswoman Ilhan Omar is 'proof immigration laws are dangerous.'
The primetime host used the opening segment of his Tuesday night show to make the claim, which prompted Omar, one of the Democrats' most prominent left-wing members of Congress, to call him a 'racist fool.'
'Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country. A system designed to strengthen America is instead undermining it. Some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately,' Carlson charged on his Fox News program Tuesday night.
Trump demonstrated his support via Twitter, retweeting conservative radio host Mark Levin, who himself tweeted criticism at CNN for attacking Carlson in the wake of Carlson's tirade.
Omar brushed off Carlson's criticism taking the predictable route and calling the host racist for his comments.
Once again, CNN comes to the defense of rabid anti-Semite Ilhan Omar https://t.co/XNuN4HC4vj— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) July 10, 2019
