Ilhan Omar couldn’t make it any clearer that while she is a member of the US House of Representatives, her constituents are radical Islamists.
At first, she criticized sanctions against Iran, which is trying to obtain a nuclear weapon, while defending sanctions against an allied nation.
Then she seemed to give Iran advice where to strike that would most hurt President Trump directly.
Trump needs to immediately divest from his businesses and comply with the emoluments clause. Iran could threaten Trump hotels *worldwide* and he could provoke war over the loss of revenue from skittish guests.
His business interests should not be driving military decisions.

Then, she admitted that it was her job to speak for the Iranian people in Congress.
I am a child of war. I know what the toll of it looks like. The trauma of war will never leave me.
If I don’t speak up for the children who would be displaced from conflict with Iran, who will? pic.twitter.com/W1GCExaFbT

It’s the job of the Iranian government, to consider the consequences of war with the US.
It should be Omar’s job to speak for the children of American service members killed with Iranian provided weapons. But no, she’d rather do the job of an Iranian Member of Parliament than an American Representative.
