"Special thanks to Representative Omar of Minnesota," Trump said while delivering remarks at the Republican Jewish Coalition on Saturday afternoon. "Oh, I forgot. She doesn’t like Israel. I forgot. I’m so sorry."

According to the statement, the man said he would "put a bullet in her [expletive] skull" during a phone call with a member of her staff.

The president’s attack on Omar was part of a wide-ranging speech he delivered to members of the Republican Jewish Coalition, during which he also claimed that Democrats "aren’t fighting for Israel in Congress." 

"Republicans believe that we must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism. We do. All of us," Trump also said. 

He also claimed at another point in the speech that a "radical agenda" being push by Congressional Democrats’ could "very well could leave Israel out there all by yourselves."
