In an interview with MSNBC Thursday, radical-left Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar blamed President Trump for her father’s death because of “dangerous criminal neglect by Trump and his administration,” adding that these people responsible for “reckless deaths” should be investigated and prosecuted.
Omar’s dad died in June after coming to the United States from Kenya.
“I lost my father on June 16. I remember my dad was in Kenya, he came back into the U.S. when COVID hit because he thought he was going to be safer here. My father and over 300,000 people have lost their lives to COVID because of dangerous criminal neglect by Trump and his administration, and I agree with Clyburn that it is not enough for us just to issue subpoenas, we have to investigate and prosecute these people who are responsible for these reckless deaths,” Omar said.
“My father should be here today, so many of our family members should be here today and they’re not here with us because we had leaders who didn’t care about their lives,” she added.
She went on, continuously blaming and accusing the president for not acknowledging deaths caused by the coronavirus, when in fact, he did. He also pressured the speedy approval of vaccines, despite Dr. Fauci and the Democrats criticizing him saying vaccines take years to prove effectivity.
Now that Biden is projected winner for the 2020 presidential elections, the Democrats have flipped and claimed these vaccines are safe, adding that the Biden administration will safely distribute them. In fact, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took it on Friday, right after Vice President, his wife and the Surgeon General had publicly received their vaccines. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell also had his vaccine injected.

Just received the safe, effective COVID vaccine following continuity-of-government protocols. Vaccines are how we beat this virus.
Now back to continue fighting for a rescue package including a lot more money for distribution so more Americans can receive it as fast as possible. pic.twitter.com/kSBhI3EzzM

“Our president today has not shown an ounce of compassion to the people who have passed away,” Omar insisted. “He still has not acknowledged the devastating loss so many of us are feeling. My father survived so many things and for him to lose his life to COVID is devastating and right before you came on the reporter was sharing a story and that story is a story that my siblings and I share over and over and over again. It does not make sense that this is a reality in this country. This could have been avoided; this can be avoided, there are people who are responsible, and we cannot forget that when the next administration is sworn in and they are in charge of what happens next.”
