AFP, Washington : Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar branded Donald Trump a "fascist" on Thursday as the president sought to distance himself from mocking chants of "Send her back!" directed at the Somali-born lawmaker by his supporters. "We have said this president is racist, we have condemned his racist remarks," said Omar, one of two Muslim women in Congress. "I believe he is fascist." Chants of "Send her back!" broke out at Trump's "Make America Great Again" rally in Greenville, North Carolina, on Wednesday night when he attacked Omar and three other ethnic minority Democratic congresswomen known as the "Squad." Omar received a very different reception when she returned home to Minnesota Thursday night and was greeted by crowds of supporters at the airport. The president's "nightmare is seeing a Somali immigrant refugee rise to Congress," she said through a megaphone, to shouts of support. "We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president, because his policies are a nightmare to us." Trump claimed to reporters in the Oval Office on Thursday that there was "great energy" at his earlier rally but he was not pleased by the taunts.
