( - Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) said at a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders at the University of Minnesota on Sunday that President Donald Trump is “hoping to undermine our values and democratic institutions.”

“But I’ll tell you what, right now achieving that universal dream feels more out of reach than it ever has in my lifetime,” Omar told the crowd at the Sanders rally.

“The current occupant of the White House likes to talk about making America great,” she said, “but every action and virtually every word out of his mouth is an attack on the very values and ideals that make this country a beacon of hope for me and people around the world.

“Every day,” Omar said, “he fights to divide us based on our identities and hoping to undermine our values and democratic institutions.

“So, we need a president who will fight every day for working people, for those who are regularly disenfranchised and purposefully left behind,” she said. “We need a president who will put an end to the corruption, to the greed, and to systems that let inequality to continue.

“And, Minnesota, that is why I am here today supporting Bernie Sanders for president,” Omar said.
