Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) defended Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent string of anti-Semitic comments while speaking at the She the People Presidential Forum in Houston, Texas on Wednesday.

Since being sworn into office earlier this year, Omar has perpetuated anti-Semitic tropes on Twitter and accused Jewish Americans of having “dual loyalty” to Israel and the U.S.

An audience member asked Booker how he, as president, would defend Omar, who falsely claimed that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) was influencing U.S. elections.

“The criticisms of the Congresswoman Omar, what Donald Trump has been saying about her, is reprehensible. It is trafficking in Islamophobia, and it should be condemned by everyone,” Booker said.
