Radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar responded to the Venezuela crisis on Wednesday by blaming the United States for “bullying” the nation, rather than acknowledging the failure of socialism. Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was having none of her anti-American propaganda.
“A lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela,” Omar said. “We’ve sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today.”
She continued: “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 is not in the interest of the United States.”

In a brutally honest tweet, Haley responded to Omar's remarks with facts.
"@IlhanMN the avg Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs. Babies have no medicine. Families have to walk miles in the heat to get the only meal they may have that day. All bc of the corrupt Maduro regime. Your comments are so far from the truth,” Haley tweeted.
She added: “Cuba and Russia appreciate your support.”
It won't come as a surprise that Democrats and the media are essentially silent on Omar's latest act of radicalism. However, other patriots, like Vice President Mike Pence have stepped up to defend America.
"As Venezuelans take to the streets to stand for their freedom against an oppressive dictator, Democrat Congresswoman @IlhanMN chooses socialism over freedom. The Trump Administration stands with the freedom-loving people of Venezuela," Pence tweeted.
This is the new Democratic Party.
