Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said late Sunday she has experienced a surge in death threats ever since President Trump tweeted out a video critical of her remarks about the Sept. 11 attacks.

The video Trump posted on Friday juxtaposes a portion of Omar’s speech to the Council for American-Islamic Relations, during which she referred to the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 as “some people who did something,” with video footage of the World Trade Center’s twin towers and the Pentagon burning.

“Since the President’s tweet Friday evening, I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life—many directly referencing or replying to the President’s video,” Omar said in the statement.
