Rep Ilhan Omar tweeted out a statement praising President Trump’s ‘incredible’ response to the coronavirus crisis. Other Democrats and leftist news pundits have praised the president’s leadership. NY Governor Andrew Cuomo has been vocal about President Trump’s leadership.
Rep. Omar responded to The Intercept’s Lee Fang tweeting about Trump’s measures to help Americans during the crisis:
“Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time.”

She went on to say that America needs a united front now:
Ayanna Pressley always says, unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership and we are seeing that in our country right now. I have faith that we will survive this as a nation and build together.
Finally, we should never let politics get in the way of good policy. This is a great start and hope others will be part of a united front to push for good policies that will help us work through the economic anxiety the country is feeling right now.
After Rep. Omar called for putting politics aside, she was trashed on Twitter by leftists who couldn’t believe she broke with the constant bashing of the president.
