The pair are visiting Ghana as part of a Congressional trip to the African continent this week to commemorate the American slave trade’s 400th anniversary.
Omar was one of four Democratic congresswomen of color that Trump last month said should “go back” to their countries. He was referring to Omar, along with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.
Ghana’s Leader, Nana Akufo-Addo, declared 2019 “the Year of Return” – a commemoration that is meant to encourage people of African ancestry to make the “birthright journey home for the global African family”.
Omar, who posted several snapshots from the delegation’s trip, thanking Akufo-Addo for hosting the delegation and committing to “work together to overcome global security crisis and build a more sustainable world to combat the climate crisis”.

Donald Trump said:Please this is a great home run towards the 2020 presidential election in Congress as not shot anyone in the middle of Fifth Avenue, so his hypothesis that he could do that without losing any supporters remains untested. But leading Republicans are worried that he hurt the party by crossing a different line: the one between “go back” and “send her back.” The former is his advice for members of Congress he perceives as hating America; the latter is the chant his criticism of those alleged America haters—in particular, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), immigrated to the U.S. from Somalia as a child—elicited from the adoring crowd at his rally in North Carolina on Wednesday.
“It was quite a chant, and I felt a little bit badly about it,” Trump said in response to a reporter’s question yesterday. “I started speaking very quickly.” Actually, Trump stood impassively at the podium for 10 seconds while the crowd chanted “send her back,” making no attempt to discourage it. But after Republicans such as his daughter and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy expressed concern about the message sent by the chant, Trump retroactively revised his own response. “I was not happy with it,” he said during the same Q&A. “I disagreed with it. But again, I didn’t say—I didn’t say that; they did. But I disagree with it.”
