President Trump doubled down on his attacks against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over her controversial comments regarding the 9/11 terrorist attacks during an interview with ABC Minneapolis on Monday, calling Omar “unpatriotic.”

Last week, a video surfaced of Omar referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as an incident in which “some people did something.”

Trump responded to these comments by tweeting a video that combined Omar’s remarks with footage from the 9/11 terrorist attacks and ended with the text, “September 11, 2001, We Remember.”

“WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” Trump tweeted on Friday with the video.

The reporter for ABC Minneapolis asked Trump whether he regretted tweeting this video out, now that Omar claims it has resulted in death threats against her.

“No, not at all. Look she’s been very disrespectful to this country. She’s been very disrespectful, frankly, to Israel. She is somebody that doesn’t really understand, I think, life, real life, what it’s all about,” Trump said. “It’s unfortunate she’s got a way about her that’s very, very bad I think for our country. I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country.”
