The Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar has called the Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson a "racist fool" after he made a racially loaded attack on her live on air.

Carlson, a controversial conservative host and Donald Trump supporter, criticized Omar in a three-minute monologue full of anti-immigrant rhetoric and personal attacks on Omar and her family.

In the segment, aired on Tuesday night, he described her as "living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country" and "a living fire alarm". He also accused Omar of having "undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people".
