Ilhan Omar Goes 'Back to Africa' - but as a V.I.P.

A Congressional delegation led by the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has arrived in Ghana. The delegation includes Chairperson of the Congressional Black Caucus Karen Bass and the legendary civil rights leader John Lewis. Also in the delegation is Somali-born Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, recently the subject of attacks by U.S. President Donald Trump, who told Omar and three other women members of Congress to "go back" to the countries they came from.
