Radical Rep Launches Insane Attack on Trump

A freshman Representative from Minnesota is making waves in Washington. This time she caused a stir when making an insane claim about President Trump's foreign policy.

According to Town Hall:

Rep. Ilan Omar (D-MN) claimed the Trump administration was waging a “coup” against the Venezuelan government for recognizing opposition leader Juan Guaido, who temporarily assumed presidential powers in an effort to unseat Nicolas Maduro.

“A US backed coup in Venezuela is not a solution to the dire issues they face,” she said on Twitter.

“Trump’s efforts to install a far right opposition will only incite violence and further destabilize the region. We must support Mexico, Uruguay & the Vatican’s efforts to facilitate a peaceful dialogue.”


Omar's tweet is particularly notable given that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi placed the anti-Israel freshman Democrat on the powerful House Committee on Foreign Affairs--a move she was widely criticized for. 

  President Trump has a coalition of partners from the hemisphere who agree with him making it evident that the representative's tweet was incredibly ill-advised.
