"Now, that was the only five seconds we felt comfortable showing," Wallace told White House press secretary Sarah HuckabeeSarah SandersAndrew Giuliani planning run for New York governor Trump appears at Sarah Huckabee Sanders campaign event Trump likely to form new super PAC MORE Sanders. "It goes on in a much worse way of her seeming, no question about it, to minimize 9/11 and then horrible images from 9/11."

"Why is the president comfortable putting out horrible images like that?" Wallace asked. "Does he worry at all about inciting violence against Muslims in general or Ilhan Omar in specific?"

"Certainly nothing could be further from the truth," Sanders responded. "The president is not trying to incite violence against anybody."

The audio in the video was taken from a speech Omar gave at the Council on American-Islamic Relations last month in which she said “some people did something" in reference to the 9/11 attacks before explaining that some used the attack to advocate for taking away civil liberties from Muslim Americans.

Trump's video immediately drew backlash from Democrats who said it was inciting violence against Omar.
