Following President Trump's tweet about Rep. Ilhan Omar's September 11 commentary, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi criticized Trump for his response.

Flashback: The criticism from Trump came after Omar spoke to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) about Muslim Americans feeling like they were constantly having to defend themselves and their freedoms. Omar received criticism for describing 9/11 as "some people did something."

What other Democrats are saying: Other Democrats have taken to Twitter to condemn Trump's comments, with some saying Trump's statement could endanger Omar.

  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said "Ilhan Omar is a leader with strength and courage. She won't back down to Trump's racism and hate, and neither will we. The disgusting and dangerous attacks against her must end."
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said "The President is inciting violence against a sitting Congresswoman—and an entire group of Americans based on their religion. It's disgusting. It's shameful. And any elected leader who refuses to condemn it shares responsibility for it."
  • South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg said "After 9/11 we all said we were changed. That we were stronger and more united. That’s what 'never forget' was about. Now, a president uses that dark day to incite his base against a member of Congress, as if for sport. As if we learned nothing that day about the workings of hate."
  • Beto O'Rourke said during a rally for his 2020 campaign the action was "an incitement to violence against Congresswoman Omar, against our fellow Americans who happen to be Muslim."
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted an image featuring Lutheran pastor Martin Niemölle "first they came" quotation on the dangers of not speaking out, as she said those who stayed silent on the issue was to be "complicit in the outright."

Scoop: FDA chief called to West Wing

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has summoned FDA commissioner Stephen Hahn to the West Wing for a 9:30am meeting Tuesday to explain why he hasn't moved faster to approve the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine, two senior administration officials told Axios.

Why it matters: The meeting is shaping up to be tense, with Hahn using what the White House will likely view as kamikaze language in a preemptive statement to Axios: "Let me be clear — our career scientists have to make the decision and they will take the time that’s needed to make the right call on this important decision."

Scoop: Schumer's regrets

Chuck Schumer told party donors during recent calls that the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the fact that Cal Cunningham "couldn't keep his zipper up" crushed Democrats' chances of regaining the Senate, sources with direct knowledge of the conversations tell Axios.

Why it matters: Democrats are hoping for a 50-50 split by winning two upcoming special elections in Georgia. But their best chance for an outright Senate majority ended when Cunningham lost in North Carolina and Sen. Susan Collins won in Maine.

Trump's coronavirus adviser Scott Atlas resigns

Scott Atlas, a controversial member of the White House coronavirus task force, handed in his resignation on Monday, according to three administration officials who discussed Atlas' resignation with Axios.

Why it matters: President Trump brought in Atlas as a counterpoint to NIAID director Anthony Fauci, whose warnings about the pandemic were dismissed by the Trump administration. With Trump now fixated on election fraud conspiracy theories, Atlas' detail comes to a natural end.
