The House overwhelmingly approved a motion on Wednesday that adds language condemning anti-Semitism to a bill that would cut off U.S. support for the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen.

Omar has apologized for the comments, though not for a separate tweet that criticized the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

She has ripped Trump over his criticism, saying he has "trafficked in hate [his] entire life."

The motion on anti-Semitism passed with 424 votes, after GOP lawmakers requested a roll call vote.

The motion states that “it is in the national interests of the United States to combat anti-Semitism at home and abroad. With an unfortunate rise in anti-Semitism and attempts to delegitimize Israel, the United States House of Representatives must emphasize the importance of combating anti-Semitism and reject all movements that deny Israel’s right to exist.” 

The underlying legislation on the Yemen war is also expected to be approved, despite opposition from the White House.
