Ilhan Omar’s Bloomberg’s tweet marked as Anti-Semitism
Rep. Ilhan Omar insinuates that Bloomberg is only funded by billionaire Leon Cooperman because they are both Jews.
New accusations of anti-Semitism were directed at U.S. Dem. Rep. Ilhan Omar (Minn.) following her tweet responding to a report that businessman Leon Cooperman is backing former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg in his presidential run.
“I wonder why?” Omar wrote on Saturday afternoon, emphasizing her question with a “thinking” emoji.

It wasn’t long before she received responses to her question.
“I suppose you think it’s all about the Benjamins,” Michael Dickson, executive director of Stand with Us, a group that fights anti-Semitism, wrote, a Fox News article reported. “We get your insinuation. True to form.”

Earlier this year, Omar responded to a threat by Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy (CA) to take action against her due to her past statements on Israel by tweeting: “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” a reference to a $100 bill bearing the image of Benjamin Franklin.
