Wednesday night, after The Scullery announced the decision to donate its daily profits, supporters at Trump's rally chanted “send her back” after the president launched into a diatribe against Omar.

He accused the first-term lawmaker and Somali refugee of demeaning U.S. service members and minimizing the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
