Washington's partisan divide quickly cracked open a little further: GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw called Omar's words "unbelievable", per CBS News, while Nancy Pelosi said "the memory of 9/11" was "sacred ground", and criticized Trump for using "the painful images of 9/11 for a political attack".

Ocasio-Cortez also briefly touched upon how Twitter enables the president to harass his opponents, referencing the Trump's recent video intercutting footage of 9/11 with cherry-picked comments from Representative Ilhan Omar.

"You refuse to co-sponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes", Ocasio-Cortez wrote to Crenshaw on Twitter.
