President Donald Trump is, once again, using his Twitter platform to insinuate that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) hates Americans.

Omar is one of Trump's favorite targets for Twitter tirades. He's previously tweeted that she "hate[s] Israel and all Jewish people," falsely claimed that she dismissed the September 11 attacks, and told her to "go back" to her country—prompting his supporters to chant "send her back" at a campaign rally shortly after.

September 11 since 2001 has become a day of reflection for many individuals and organizations. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was no exception.

Like many federal agencies, they took the opportunity to commemorate 9/11. But unlike others—many who actually participated in threat mitigation and recovery efforts after the attack—ICE decided to herald their own accomplishments rather than make a statement about those who died or those who stepped up.

President Donald Trump tweeted a photograph of First Lady Melania Trump and him commemorating the September 11 terrorist attacks, but a detail on the First Lady's coat is raising eyebrows.

Eagle-eyed observers noticed that the white stitching of Melania's coat resembles a skyscraper—and a button flap on top of it resembles a plane, resulting in an unfortunate resemblance to a plane flying into a tower. Not the best look for 9/11.

Americans on both sides of the aisle were stunned this weekend when President Donald Trump announced that a top secret meeting between his administration and leaders of the Taliban had been cancelled after the violent fundamentalist group took credit for a bombing in Kabul that left 12 people, including an American soldier, dead.

It wasn't the meeting's cancellation that was a surprise, but that a meeting with the Taliban and the President at Camp David on the 18th anniversary week of the September 11 attacks was ever on the table in the first place.

President Donald Trump announced this weekend that he scrapped plans to meet with Taliban leaders at Camp David the week of the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

After passing the Senate and House of Represenatives, legislation ensuring permanent funding for the healthcare of first responders during the September 11 attacks went to the White House for President Donald Trump's signature.

While the passage of the bipartisan bill was a victory for American heroes, the signing ceremony highlighted an ongoing problem with Trump's claims about his actions during one of the most infamous days in American history.
