Marc Lotter: It’s Not Trump Putting Omar in Danger, But Her Ill Thought out Words

‘I’m not going to tell the president what he should or should not do with the Twitter account’

EXCERPT:

CAMEROTA: "... move on to the issue with Ilhan Omar and President Trump’s tweet that Nancy Pelosi and the congresswoman herself say have upped the amount of death threats that the congresswoman is getting that we've seen a spike in the threats against her, and so the capitol police, et cetera are having to expend extra resources to protect her. Does the president know that he’s putting her in danger?"
LOTTER: "Well I don’t think it is the president who is putting her in danger, I think it is her ill thought out words she used to describe the greatest terror attack on the history of United States soil which killed nearly 3,000 Americans. Those are her words. That’s what making the threats. But make no mistake, no Congress person, no American should be threatened and no one is inciting violence. I think what they are doing is showing outrage toward words that should have been better thought out."
