Representative. Omar asked Twitter to remove one of Trump’s tweets that falsely claimed she was out partying on the anniversary of 9/11..

The issue began when Trump retweeted a tweet originally posted by Terrency Williams, a vile wing nut whom some have labeled an actor and comedian. The tweet shows Rep. Omar out dancing and partying it up on the anniversary of 9/11.
However, that never happened. The video that accompanied the original the now deleted tweet actually occurred on 9/13 at a Congressional Black Caucus event.
Twitter has confirmed Williams deleted his original tweet but never commented on Trump retweeting the lie.
Since his latest tweet about Rep. Omar, she now claims she has received even more threats against her.
