Venezuela is in complete meltdown. Socialism has pushed the South American country to poverty, starvation and the brink of civil war.
Who does Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar blame for this? The United States, naturally. This is who she is, folks.
FOX News reports:
Rep. Ilhan Omar says US ‘kind of helped lead the devastation’ in Venezuela
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, suggested Wednesday the United States could be partly to blame for the ongoing turmoil in Venezuela, saying the policies of the Trump administration had “kind of helped lead the devastation.”
Appearing on Democracy Now, a news program broadcast on PBS, among other outlets, Omar was asked to weigh in on what the host described as a “US-supported coup attempt” against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.
“A lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today,” Omar said. “This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States.”
Omar added that there are “finally” lawmakers who have been elected to Congress who agree with her views.

Apparently Maduro's starvation of his people and armored trucks running them over in the streets is not worthy of criticism in her eyes. pic.twitter.com/leTcRHWDVd

This is a pretty sick but expected display by @Ilhan
She is a traitor to freedom. A Total hypocrite and fraud, a fake humanitarian if ever there was one.
She can’t help but side with America’s foes…I wonder why?! 🤔 https://t.co/PjDlnm4hxK

She needs to be voted out of office, ASAP.
