ILHAN Omar has ripped Donald Trump as "bratty" and accused him of "not condemning white supremacists" after Tuesday's debate.
The Democrat took to Twitter last night to slam the president's comments, telling her 2million followers "I have a headache, what a mess."

During the debate, moderator Chris Wallace noted that Trump had previously criticized his Dem rival Biden for failing to call out "Antifa and other left-wing extremist groups."
Wallace then asked Trump: "Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down?"
"Sure, I'm willing to do that," Trump replied. "But almost everything I see is from the left-wing not from the right-wing. I'm willing to do anything – I want to see peace."
"Well, then do it, sir," Wallace said.
During the debate:
- Biden accused the president of being a "racist" and told him to "shut up"
- The President and his Democratic rival clashed over Trump's handling of COVID
- Trump continued to cast doubt over postal voting, insisting it's open to fraud
- Biden sought distanced himself from the hard left's "defund the police" calls
- Trump attacked Biden's son Hunter's foreign business deals
- The President told the right-wing group The Proud Boys to "stand by"
Trump then went on to tell right-wing group The Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by."
Following the comments, Omar tweeted: "Why am I not surprised that the president who once praised Nazis as "very fine people" just refused to condemn white supremacists?"
She went on to take personal hit at the president, dubbing him as "that bratty child you wouldn’t want to babysit."
Her comments echo that of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who claimed Trump was a "white supremacist" and said "fascism is at our door" in a stinging attack.
"Donald Trump is a white supremacist," AOC tweeted. "People have been warning about this for a long time.
"They were ridiculed, called hyperbolic & radical – not bc [sic] they were wrong, but bc [sic] others couldn’t accept that our country elected a supremacist as President."
"This is fascism at our door," she concluded.
The President's words sparked an immediate reaction from the Proud Boys, an organization that has been accused of inciting violence during clashes across the US.
Members of the group posted: "We're ready" and their account on the social media app Telegram promptly posted: "Standing down and standing by sir."
