(Newser) – President Trump has no qualms about the video he tweeted on Friday that spliced comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar about 9/11 and Islamophobia with footage of the terror attack. In fact, he has more criticism of her. When speaking with KSTP while in Minneapolis Monday, Trump was directly asked if he had second thoughts after Omar said Trump's tweet spurred threats on her life.

"No, not at all," he replied. "Look, she's been very disrespectful to this country. She’s been very disrespectful, frankly, to Israel. She is somebody that doesn't really understand, I think, life, real life, what it’s all about. It’s unfortunate—she's got a way about her that's very, very bad, I think, for our country. I think she's extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country." (Read more President Trump stories.)
