Twitter erupted on Friday after Trump tweeted a video showing scenes of the 9/11 terrorist attacks intercut with a quote from Omar. The tweet was posted atop Trump's Twitter feed for much of Sunday, with more than 9 million views.
In a tweet sent before his departure, Trump singled out House speakerNancy Pelosi for defending Omar, who he sardonically referred to as Pelosi's "leader".
He asserts, without evidence, that Omar is "out of control, except for her control of Nancy!" Chairwoman Karen Bass said whipping up "outrage" over Omar "further puts her life in danger".
Omar was speaking at a CAIR banquet in California in March when she made her controversial remarks about 9/11.
Fox News Channel host Brian Kilmeade said on a "Fox & Friends" segment on Omar, "You have to wonder if she's an American first".
Prominent Democrats including Beto O'Rourke, Kamala Harris and Omar's fellow first-time Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have rushed to Omar's defense, accusing the president and other Republicans of deliberately taking her remarks out of context and endangering her life. No one should be threatened for expressing their opinions, and the government should take whatever action is necessary to make sure Omar is safe.
Omar's broader speech had condemned the increase in hate and threats to Muslims' safety in the U.S.in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

Omar said in a statement posted on Twitter Sunday that numerous increased threats she had received were "directly referencing or replying to the President's video".
"Following the President's tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff", Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement. While criticizing Trump for his threat to ship undocumented immigrants to "sanctuary cities" like San Francisco-where Pelosi's congressional district is located-she declared, "I'm not giving up on the president", as a possible partner on immigration policy.
Their latest spat concerns Omar's remarks about the treatment of American Muslims since the September 2001 terror attacks on NY and Washington. "President Trump must take down his disrespectful and unsafe video", Pelosi added, as quoted by Haaretz. John McCain's funeral. The tweet showed a gun pointed at McCain's daughter while she wept over her father's casket.
Pelosi called Trump's video "disrespectful and dangerous" and said it must be removed. Some of that criticism crossed a clear line: Omar has claimed that she received death threats in the wake of Trump's tweet. On Friday, Trump tweeted out the video, saying, "WE WILL NEVER FORGET!"
Crenshaw also endorsed a tweet that claimed Omar "does not consider [September 11] a terrorist attack on the United States of America by terrorists" and repeated the far-right conspiracy theory that CAIR serves as little more than a front for foreign terrorists.
Sarah Sanders called Omar's comments "disgraceful and unbefitting", and questioned what she sees as lack of action from Democrats on the issue.
