Trump lies about claims he tried to stop ‘Send her back!’ chants about Rep. Ilhan Omar

At a Trump campaign rally Wednesday, the crowd broke into an extended chant — “Send her back!” — about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

Trump said he tried to stop the “Send her back!” chants by quickly resuming his speech. He didn’t. He stood there and waited out the crowd before starting to talk again. Video of the rally shows Trump standing passively onstage, watching the crowd. The chants die down on their own.

Trump then continues his attack. The crowd stops him again, chanting “send her back!” for 13 seconds. Trump stands onstage, waits for the chant to die down, then keeps talking about Omar.

Trump lied again. And his lie is right there on video.
