Donald Trump Jr., whom many assume might seek political office should his father be re-elected in 2020, caused a stir when he referred to several Democratic freshmen congresswomen as “Islamists”.
The three he referred to were Representative Ilhan Omar and likely Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib.
Trump Jr. said this during an interview with Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk of which the New York Post published some excerpts.
“The worst is watching Nancy Pelosi totally get hijacked by three freshmen congresswomen,” the eldest son of the President stated.
“It seems like they’re all Islamists. I don’t know how to say it any other way.”
“I put out a tweet yesterday about Omar. She’s literally, it feels like she watched ‘Blackhawk Down’ and is rooting for the Somalis,” Trump Jr. said. “These were like terrorists. She called American soldiers killers for literally running a peacekeeping mission and fighting against terrorism.”
