Rep. Ilhan Omar Claims Trump Is Blackmailing Lindsey Graham

On Thursday morning, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), the first Somali-American congresswoman, claimed that President Donald Trump is somehow blackmailing Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). She tweeted this charge on Wednesday and doubled down on CNN on Thursday.

“So over the last three years, we have seen many times where Senator Lindsey Graham has told us how dangerous this president could be if he was given the opportunity to be in the White House,” Omar argued. “And all of a sudden he has made not only 180 turnaround, but a 360 turnaround.”
