Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) slammed President Trump on Saturday after he tweeted an edited video of comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) about the 9/11 attacks that have sparked criticism.

“The memory of 9/11 is sacred ground, and any discussion of it must be done with reverence. The President shouldn’t use the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack,” Pelosi said in a statement.

The article goes on to state the following:

“It is wrong for the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to fan the flames to make anyone less safe.”

The video, which Trump tweeted Friday, shows Omar speaking to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in March spliced together with video of the 9/11 attacks. Omar’s comments that “some people did something” – referring to 9/11 – appear between segments of footage and text memorializing the deadly attacks.
