Rep. Omar apologized on Monday for comments suggesting that US support for the Jewish state is the result of money flowing from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), an influential pro-Israel lobbying group. "I think she should resign from Congress, frankly", he added. I nearly laugh because I know that if we saw (what Israel does) in any other society, we would criticize it. Democratic commentator Keith Boykin said that it was outright hypocrisy to hear Trump call for Omar to apologize and resign since he refuses to do the same for his own racist statements. "I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee".
Trump himself made a point of referring to Omar's statements on Monday that the congresswoman "should be ashamed" and that her apologies had been inadequate.
He and others are upset, among other things, over her tweet suggesting that the only reasons USA politicians support Israel is that they are paid to do so by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
Omar has been critical of the Israeli government over its treatment of Palestinians and has supported the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement - a nonviolent activist campaign that aims to put economic and political pressure on Israel over its actions toward Palestinians, including calling for an end to Israeli occupation of the West Bank. "This is why I unequivocally apologize". And many of their colleagues play along: Deputy Majority Whip Dan Kildee (D-Mich.), for example, said, "We ought to tamp down a bit of the rhetoric", but also warned against going "too far to make judgments" about Omar's latest words.

"What she said is so deep-seated in her heart that her lame apology - and that's what it was; it was lame, and she didn't mean a word of it - was just not appropriate", Trump stated.
The failure to discipline Omar stands in marked contrast to House Republicans, who stripped Rep. Steve King of his committee assignments for lamenting the fact that "white supremacy" is deemed an offensive term. King asked the Times. Mark Pocan, D-Wisconsin, said Trump has no authority on issues of anti-Semitism especially given his equivocating statement after a deadly rally in 2017 of neo-Nazis chanting "Jews will not replace us" in Charlottesville, Virginia.
On Feb. 10, Omar launched a renewed attack on Jews by perpetuating the conspiracy theory that Jews financially control American politics.
