On Tuesday, Black Lives Matter and other anti-Trump groups held a rally at the Capitol calling for President Trump to be censured for his response to Rep. Ilhan Omar's "some people did something" 9/11 remarks. During this rally, Rep. Omar praised her native Somalia and blamed the president for recent attacks on synagogues and mosques.

She did not speak highly of the U.S., however, saying “This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people.”
