Ilhan Omar Tells Biden to ‘Get It Together’ After Pulling Anti-Trump Ads

'Why would Biden delay or suspend his campaign when we know Trump would've had ads up by noon today ridiculing Biden for testing positive?'

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., told Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden to “get it together,” after his campaign stopped airing attack ads against President Donald Trump.

Trump checked into Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday after announcing that morning that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Following three days of treatment, he returned to the White House on Monday evening.

Biden’s campaign publicly declared that it would pull its negative ads while the president recovered, The Sun reported.

However, it is unclear whether Biden actually did so. Some in the Trump campaign noted that the adds still appeared to be running.

Nonetheless, while Biden tweeted his sympathy, Omar used the opportunity to call for the Senate to shut down so that Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett cannot be confirmed before the election.

The “Squad” member, who was recently implicated in an expose about illegal ballot-harvesting in her home district of Minneapolis, said Trump would have taken the opposite course if Biden were the one who tested positive.

“Why would Biden delay or suspend his campaign when we know Trump would’ve had ads up by noon today ridiculing Biden for testing positive? Get it together,” she tweeted on Friday.

She said the Rose Garden ceremony for Barrett caused the virus to spread among the White House staff and members of Congress.

Democrats are furious because the Rose Garden event did not require attendees to wear masks or social distance.

Omar said Trump has not cared about the virus until it personally affected him.

“For months, we have been hoping for a simple acknowledgement from the President—to hear the words, ‘We will get through this together,'” Omar said, despite Trump having made similar statements for the past six months.

“And now we only hear those words when it is about him—not the hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their lives, and the millions whose families have been touched by it because of his malfeasance,” she said.
