President Donald Trump called the vote a disgrace, because at its root, it was about Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and the disparaging remarks she made about Israel and those who blindly support the Jewish state.

"If you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party, they've become an anti-Jewish party, and that's too bad," Trump said.

Omar said Israel's allies pressure legislators to pledge allegiance to a foreign country.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the remark was never meant to be anti-Semitic.
