Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) took down a derogatory tweet she had sent out on Monday about President Donald Trump—which alluded to his difficulty walking down a set of stairs—and announced the move in a tweet in which she said: ‘Trump is a racist incompetent wannabe dictator.”

The group ProPublica maintains copies of tweets that Rep. Ilhan Omar has deleted.

In one of these tweets sent out on Monday, according to the ProPublica website, Omar responds to a tweet in which Trump said: “I am helping Minnesota greatly. OBiden was a Minnesota disaster!”

In her now deleted tweet, as memorialized on the ProPublica website, Omar says: “You couldn’t help yourself off stairs, let alone any state.”

In her tweet announcing she was taking this one down, Omar says: “I’m taking down the tweet about Trump. Trump is a racist incompetent wannabe dictator. That is enough! We should criticize him on those grounds, not on his physical abilities—and that includes me.
