Trump supporters chant ‘send her back’ at mentions of Somalia-born US citizen congresswoman Ilhan Omar

Scotland Correspondent

When he ran against Hillary Clinton – Donald Trump’s crowds shouted “lock her up”.

Last night it was “send her back’ – a chant directed at Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a US citizen born in Somalia.

She’s one of four Democratic congresswomen the President has been attacking all week, telling them to leave the country – and branding them as ‘hate filled extremists’.

Today Mr Trump distanced himself from the chant, claiming he disagreed with it.
