The then-presidential candidate could be seen taking the microphone from the supporter while shaking his head before going on to say: “No, ma’am. He’s a decent family man, citizen who I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues.”

“And that’s what this campaign is all about,” he continued. “He’s not.

Meghan McCain wrote in the post on Wednesday that she was sharing the old footage for “anyone who needs reminding of how a lot of Republicans like me were raised and how we view the world.”

“I love you Dad and I've never missed your leadership more,” she added.

The video has since started to make rounds on social media, with many contrasting the footage with Trump’s failure to silence to his supporters at a rally on Wednesday night who launched "send her back" chants directed at Omar.

Trump, who was criticized over the weekend for telling the Somali American lawmaker and three other lawmakers of color to “go back” their home countries, sought to distance himself from the controversy by disavowing the chants later on Thursday. 

“I was not happy with it. I disagree with it,” Trump told reporters.

When pressed about his failure to stop the chants, Trump said, “I think I did. I started speaking very quickly.”
