President Donald Trump called out Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar over her dancing on the week of the anniversary of 9/11 in a tweet Wednesday.

“IIhan Omar, a member of AOC Plus 3, will win us the Great State of Minnesota. The new face of the Democrat Party!” Trump said, quote-tweeting a video from conservative comedian Terrence K. Williams where he reacts to Omar partying on the week of the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

The dancing video was not actually posted on September 11th, but two days later.

Omar responded to the president’s tweet by saying, “The President of the United States is continuing to spread lies that put my life at risk.”

Trump and Omar have repeatedly exchanged barbs. The president accused Omar of hating Israel and Jewish people in general last month.

He also previously reacted to Omar characterizing 9/11 as “some people did something” by tweeting a video of the 9/11 attacks in New York City. (RELATED: Rashida Tlaib Defends Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 Comments: This is ‘Racist’)

On the anniversary of 9/11 last week, Omar did an interview with CBS’ Face The Nation, saying that “9/11 was an attack on all Americans.”

She also bemoaned Islamophobia she says she faced after the attacks, saying that other Americans treated her as “suspect” following the attacks.
