Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday ordered Capitol Hill Police to provide extra protection for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). The decision comes after President Donald Trump tweeted a video of Omar saying “some people did something” on September 11, 2001. . .

Pelosi released the following statement about beefing up security:
Following the President’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces.
The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video.
