“Firstly, this is my country & I am a member of the House that impeached you,” Omar shot back. “Secondly, I fled civil war when I was 8. An 8-year-old doesn’t run a country even though you run our country like one.” 

Omar has been an American citizen since 2000. 

The Minnesota lawmaker has been a favorite target of Trump throughout his presidency, pouncing on her critical comments of Israel to cast her as anti-Semitic and saying at one point she and three other congresswomen of color should “go back” to their countries.

Omar has also been a prominent foil for the GOP faithful, which broke out into a “send her back” chant at a Trump rally last year.
