Ilhan Omar Pauses Partisanship To Praise President Trump’s Leadership

Rep. Ilhan Omar, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, reversed course on her typical mantra and lauded the leadership she is seeing coming from the Oval Office.

“Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time,” Rep. Omar tweeted referring to some of President Trump’s recent crisis policies.

“Finally, we should never let politics get in the way of good policy,” Omar added. “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.”

Her tweet was a direct comment to Lee Fang’s observation: “Trump suspending mortgage foreclosures, demanding cash payments to Americans, now invoking the Defense Production Act to force private firms to produce needed supplies is incredible. Kind of a shell shock for anyone who reported on any economic policies in the Obama years.”

Omar’s praise is not the only applause for Trump’s leadership coming from left. Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York said “[Trump’s] team is on it. They’ve been responsive. … I want to say thank you.” Then Dana Bash of CNN also gave credit to the President by noting Trump is the “kind of leader that people need.”
