Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar demanded President Donald Trump fully divest from his company after Iran threatened his hotels.
An Iranian official tweeted a list of properties owned by the Trump Organization and suggested that Trump be targeted following his decision to kill Iranian Gen.
In response to the threat against Trump’s hotels, Rep. Ilhan Omar called for the president to divest from his businesses, so the threats against his properties do not influence his foreign policy.
Trump needs to immediately divest from his businesses and comply with the emoluments clause. Iran could threaten Trump hotels *worldwide* and he could provoke war over the loss of revenue from skittish guests.
His business interests should not be driving military decisions.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) floated the theory that President Donald Trump could go to war against Iran if the Islamic regime targets his hotel properties in response to the U.S.’s deadly strike on military commander Qasem Soleimani.
“Trump needs to immediately divest from his businesses and comply with the emoluments clause. Iran could threaten Trump hotels *worldwide* and he could provoke war over the loss of revenue from skittish guests,” Omar, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, wrote on Twitter Monday. “His business interests should not be driving military decisions.”
Her take comes after Hesameddin Ashena, a senior aide to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, tweeted a Forbes magazine video featuring Trump properties as well as a quote from Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
“I tell the whole world that if the world wants to stand up to our religion, we will stand up against their whole world,” read the quote. More
So, if Iran attacks a Trump property and kills Americans, the US should not do anything because it’s Trump’s property?
Omar your in our America government and should be standing for the interest of Americans not for those who choose to harm America , ethics committee needs to expel you , Imar you are a disgrace

How Ilhan Omar was voted into congress in the first place is disturbing evidence of just how apathetic the nation has become.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
