Donald Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien has called Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar the «  most extreme and dangerous member  » of the Democratic Party as Republicans scramble to win votes in the ‘State of the battlefield

Stepien made the scathing comment during a media call on Friday, according to Newsweek, marking the latest in a series of attacks on Omar by the president and his team

«  Everywhere else in the state you have common sense Democrats who no longer recognize Joe Biden’s Democratic Party,  » Stepien said in reference to Minnesota

Stepien also accused Omar of pushing Biden to the radical left on key issues, saying: ‘We know what she wants to do, she wants to disband the police, she is pushing for the Green New Deal ‘

Donald Trump’s senior campaign manager Bill Stepien (left) called Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar (right) the «  most extreme and dangerous member  » of the Democratic Party during the a call to media on Friday as Republicans scrambled to regain control of the state battlefield

His criticisms echo those made by Trump during his repeated attacks on Omar during the election campaign in recent weeks, including one at a rally in Florida where the president said the first-year lawmaker «  hate our country  » and accused her of entering the United States illegally

Omar was born in Somalia and arrived in the United States as a refugee in the 1990s and became a United States citizen at the age of 17 in 2000

During the rally in Florida on October 16, Trump said of Omar: ‘She comes from a place that doesn’t even have a government, then she comes here, she tells us how to run our country and she hates our country

‘If you look at the house with Pelosi, it’s like they hate Israel, and they believe in Omar who came here and married his brother or something, and entered illegally’

Omar’s office said claims that her ex-husband Ahmed Nur Said Elmi was in fact her brother whom she married in 2009 so that he could move to the United States are «  lies disgusting  »

Trump again sued Omar at a rally on Oct. 17 in Michigan, claiming she ‘really hates our country’ and stating, ‘We’re going to win Minnesota because of her’

Trump has launched repeated attacks on Omar during the election campaign in recent weeks, including at rallies in Michigan (pictured) and Florida, where he said the first-year MP ‘hates our country’ and accused her of illegally entering the United States

Omar replied in an interview with MSNBC the next day, claiming that she «  loves this country  » more than Trump and refuting his baseless claims that she entered the United States illegally

‘It really is also amazing how he characterizes what love for this country is. I would definitely say that not only Somalis but myself, the governor of Michigan and our president [Pelosi ] all love this country more than the president, ”said Omar

Omar also claimed that attacks by Trump and his team resulted in her receiving death threats, saying: ‘Every time the president invoked my name it incited violence against me’

Omar replied in an interview with MSNBC last week, claiming she «  loves this country  » more than Trump and refuting his baseless claims that she entered the United States illegally

@IlhanMN responds to the President’s criticism: « I certainly think not only Somalis, but I, the Governor of Michigan, our speaker, all love this country much more than the President, who not only destroys the Presidency, but whatever this country stands for « PhotoTwittercom / kcaiClS4K1

As Election Day approached, Trump and his campaign increasingly relied on fear tactics to tip the polls in their favor in battlefield states like Minnesota

Although the state’s 10 electoral votes have gone to Democratic candidates in the last four elections, Trump has come to a victory point in 2016 and therefore hopes to bring it home this year

Biden currently holds a six-point lead over Trump in the state, according to RealClearPolitics analysis of recent polls

As Stepien did in Friday’s campaign call, Trump has repeatedly accused the left of trying to «  destroy the American way of life,  » «  erase the American history  » and «  purge American values ​​ » – and claimed, without any basis, that Democrats rival Joe Biden would put communities at risk

Trump is spreading the grim message as he faces headwinds not only in national polls, which show Biden leading, but also in major battlefield surveys

His comments come after his campaign, with far less money than that of Biden, who largely retired from television advertising in the Midwest, shifting much of his money to Sun Belt states such as Florida, North Carolina, Arizona and Georgia, as well as Pennsylvania

As he tries to energize his base and prevent voters on the fence from turning against him, Trump has sought to portray Democrats as «  anti-American radicals  » and said the moderates had a «  moral duty  » to join the Republican Party

Same question after question, as he claimed in hyperbolic terms that Biden’s election would cause ‘the greatest depression in our country’s history’ and ‘make Michigan a camp refugees  »
