Trump Predicts Minnesota Win in 2020 Thanks to Omar

President Donald Trump predicted victory in the blue state of Minnesota on Tuesday with a tweet that cited the state’s strong economic position and the political rise of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

“In 2016 I almost won Minnesota. In 2020, because of America hating anti-Semite Rep. Omar, & the fact that Minnesota is having its best economic year ever, I will win the State!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

The tweet is the latest flashpoint between Trump and the freshmen congresswomen known as “the squad”: Reps. Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-NY).

Earlier this month, Trump inserted himself into a Democratic Party squabble between “the squad” and House Democratic leadership, most notably Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). According to strategists, Trump’s plan was to turn “the squad” into the new face of the Democratic Party.

In 2016, Trump lost the state of Minnesota to Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton by about 44,000 votes.

Despite that close result, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) tweeted that Trump will “never win Minnesota.” Klobuchar is one of the two dozen Democratic candidates running for president in 2020.

A Republican has not won the state of Minnesota since 1972, but Trump’s margin was closer than any other presidential contest in the 21st century.
