A smiling Omar can be seen making her way through the crowd throughout the chants.
Worldwide condemnation has rained down over the comments, with British Prime Minister Theresa May calling them "completely unacceptable" and New Zealand's leader Jacinda Ardern saying she "completely and utterly" disagrees with him.
That support from independents helped propel Democrats to take back the House in 2018, and independents are especially vital for Republicans to win in presidential elections. Mr Trump described the women - known as "the squad" - as a "force of evil".
Her political rise has been steeped in controversy. "And so this is not about me - this is about us fighting for what this country truly should be".
GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of IL tweeted that the "send her back" chant was "ugly, wrong, & would send chills down the spines of our Founding Fathers".
The comment was among multiple unvarnished remarks seen by critics as discriminatory tropes aimed at Jews, and she was rebuked by leaders in both parties.
Now in her late 30s, Omar told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that she, like many refugees, does not have a birth certificate.
But the following month she landed in hot water again, when a video went viral showing her using the phrase "some people did something" to allude to the attacks of September 11, 2001.

His criticism of Omar included a false accusation that she has voiced pride in Al-Qaeda.
In North Carolina, Trump berated each of the four congresswomen and said: "They never have anything good to say".

FILE - Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., speaks at the 2019 Essence Festival at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, July 6, 2019. Since January she has been a congresswoman from Minneapolis, a large city in the USA heartland state of Minnesota.
"We're in a big debate now and next year about what we want America to be like".
Slight in stature, Omar stands out in Congress for her vivacious personality, bold fashion choices, and head scarves. Asked why he did not stop them, the president said that he had tried by resuming his speech "very quickly".
Trump started the week's tumult by tweeting Sunday that Omar and three other freshmen congresswomen could "go back" to their native countries if they were unhappy here.
Outspoken and social media savvy, the four have together exposed divisions between the party's old guard, helmed by Pelosi, and a progressive faction chomping at the bit for greater influence.
The president singled her out Wednesday at his rally in North Carolina, saying she has "slandered" United States service members and "minimized" 9/11.
