Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar turned heads on social media Wednesday evening, as she issued praise towards President Trump and his “unprecedented leadership” during the COVID-19 crisis.

The rare moment occurred when Omar, who is often critical towards the Trump Administration, responded to an observation made by a journalist over the President’s decisions and ideas to bring relief to Americans.

“Trump suspending mortgage foreclosures, demanding cash payments to Americans, now invoking the Defense Production Act to force private firms to produce needed supplies is incredible,” investigative journalist Lee Fang wrote.

He added, “Kind of a shell shock for anyone who reported on any economic policies in the Obama years.”

In reaction to Fang’s remarks, Rep. Omar replied with a hand-clapping emoji, “Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time.” See Below
