Rep Ilhan Omar: 'My Life Is An Example Of What Can Happen When People Give You A Chance | MSNBC 1

 

After being overwhelming re-elected to Congress, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota is looking ahead to “a process to heal the divides in our country.” She recalls her own journey: “I was uprooted from my home country at the age of 8 because of violence and divisions, because of what happens when people don’t see each other as neighbors, as friends, and as family and turn on one another.”» Subscribe to MSNBC:

    He’s learned nothing. May we move on to the time when who “he” is isn’t obvious.

  3. We all saw Trump trying to capitalize on the hate in this country, bashing this woman consistently at every Minnesota rally he held.
    America is better than that.

  4. That’s right we mobilize, organize and get out the vote. Democratic policies are best for the country and the environment

  5. What a country!! 70M maroons voted for the most dangerous narcissistic psyko ever.

      A little respect, thanks. They are fellow Americans – which is the whole point of Joe Biden’s approach. It’s not enough to vote for Mr. Biden. You have to embrace his way of regarding all Americans as one people. As he said, ‘An opponent is not an enemy’. It’s not always people’s fault that they have too much trust or watch and believe the wrong media outlets. We all vote on the information we have access to. PS I’m delighted with the result of the vote!

    • @Trailin’ Annie Take your hate and put it somewhere else please. Don’t blame others for your sadness.

    • ​@Trailin’ Annie If you want that you can just vote for the guy the Neo-Nazis voted for. Oh maybe you already did.

    • @Shin Nope it would never happen. We cannot have a foreign citizen in our parliament.

    • @Trailin’ Annie What is anti Semite to someone who is actually a Semite? Please google who are the Semites? You should be more worried and afraid of those with torches in the streets, marching and chanting: “JEWS WILL NOT REPLACE US!!..” Those who have hate in their will always hate toward Blacks, Jews, Lgbtq and anyone who do not think like them or look like them – A hater is drinking poison everyday, while wishing others to die….Lets clean our hearts because our Souls are yearning for love….

      @Trailin’ Annie IF …. I want to hear from an arsehole, I’ll fart.

      Peddle your bigotry and racism elsewhere.

    The loads have been lifted, congrats to all.

  8. Trump learns? Since when? Does he have the brain capacity to learn?

  9. We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race.

    America gave Donald tRump a chance but he blew it! Myself personally, I never gave him the benefit of doubt looking into his track record.

  11. How can a country that happily sends poor working class people to war and spends nearly as much as the rest of the world on their military not provide a basic health care system for it’s people? People are saying it’s profits and that the rich won’t pay the taxes to help their fellow Americans. That cannot be true can it?

    • Anthony Goedhart | November 8, 2020 at 5:49 PM | Reply

      @BunkerBoy tRump yup just picked up.my monthly medication 30 min ago. 45$ for 7 meds that would cost me over 700 in the U.S. I don’t know how you guys do it. Most people here don’t buy health insurance, or their job provides it to give them a little extra like dental or vision care. If I go to the hospital I just go to the hospital. I don’t think about money.

    • BunkerBoy tRump | November 8, 2020 at 6:22 PM | Reply

      @Anthony Goedhart : Good for you, Anthony! $45 Canadian vs $700 US is like another 30% savings on top. If your medication allows you to have a drink, “Cheer’s.”

      @BunkerBoy tRump I hope the idiots don’t get stupid and things go back to normal. I stopped going to the states the minute this clown came in office

      @Trailin’ Annie You are a liar and disseminater of false propaganda. Get over your bigotry, or at least keep that garbage to yourself.

      @James Lade It’s so disheartening. Once upon a time, even Republicans had compassion for other humans. Not anymore.

  12. “rid HIM of our Country” very adroit observation of the details… Great job Rep. Ilhan Omar…

  13. I am happy for her. God bless America, the only place on earth that’s always given everyone a chance to be somebody; I mean people like me as well

    Ilhan Omar’s values & agenda are universal, as reflected in her truly landslide victory.

      @Trailin’ Annie You should discuss Obama and Trump both backing Wahabi Terrorists in the Middle East namely Al-Qaeda/Al-Nusra/HTS/AQAP and even ISIS aka The Israeli Secret Intelligence Service, so far as Omar’s record goes she voted to stop selling weapons to Saudi and UAE both countries who joined hands with Israel recently.

  15. Without Ms Omar and other progressives, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan would be red, and trump would be president… never forget that!

  16. If his children run ,because there is talk about it we need to come out like we did before and stop them in there tracks!!!!

    • Well it’s up to the Republican Party. So we can NOT let up on our legislators. Starting TODAY keep the pressure on to oust anyone from the Freedom Caucus aka Tea Party, and get rid of any Repuglican over the age of 70

      Isn’t there a clause in Presidential requirements that prohibit convicted felons from running for office? Within 4 years I’ll bet Ivanka, Eric and Don Jr. plus Trump himself will have felony records, making them all ineligible.

  17. Perfectly said. “He is a symptom”.

  18. SUPPORT JON OSSOFF AND RAFAEL WARNOCK IN THE GEORGIA SPECIAL RUN OFF.
    That is the 1st priority. Call friends in Georgia get them on board.

    How sweet it is, that the Squad all got reelected and Trump got dumped.
