Rep. Ilhan Omar mocked Sen. Ted Cruz for his tweet asking why Democrats were “outraged” over the death of Iranian General Soleimani?
Cruz was responding to Omar’s previous tweet calling members of Congress to step in and prevent President Trump from further conflict with Iran:
“According to the Obama Department of Defense, Qasem Soleimani was a terrorist directly responsible for the murder of over 500 US servicemen & women. Why are congressional Dems outraged that he’s finally dead?”

Rep. Omar then mocked Senator Cruz:
“We are outraged the president would assassinate a foreign official, possibly setting off another war without Congressional authorization and has zero plan to deal with the consequences. But of course, you know that.”
Omar followed up with a quote from Senator Cruz during the 2016 Republican primaries criticizing Trump’s leadership abilities.
“I don't know anyone who would be comfortable with someone who behaves this way having his finger on the button.”
