US President Donald Trump has endorsed Lacy Johnson, a Republican candidate who is now poised to challenge Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) in the upcoming 2020 US House of Representatives elections.

Delivering the announcement via Twitter, Trump stated that he believes Johnson deserves his endorsement, and that “Omar is a disaster”, accusing the Democratic congresswoman of seeking to impose “much higher taxes” and of hating the US military and veterans, among other things.

Ilhan Omar, a Muslim originally from Somalia, has been involved in several major controversies in recent times. In the past, she has hinted that U.S. aid to Israel is out of economic interest and has even written that Israel “hypnotizes” the world.
