Sen. Rand Paul has joined the chorus of criticism against House Rep. Ilhan Omar, saying she deserves to be rebuked for criticizing the United States after the country took her in as a Somali refugee.
Paul (R-Kentucky) said he was “dumbfounded” by Omar’s (D-Minnesota) recent comments about the U.S.
“I’m sort of dumbfounded how unappreciative she is of our country,” Paul told Kentucky broadcaster WAVE-3.
Paul said Omar indicated the United States “is terrible, a place without justice and all this. She’s a congresswoman. She got here as a refugee 20 years ago. She’s elected to congress. I can’t imagine a better country that elected her to congress and she badmouths our country.”
