HALEY TORCHES AOC: Nikki Haley Slams Ocasio-Cortez Over Venezuelan Crisis

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.15.19

Former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley unloaded on controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her total silence on Venezuela’s political crisis; telling the far-left lawmaker a “simple no would suffice” when asked if she supports Maduro’s brutal regime.

“When a reporter asked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez if the Maduro regime is legitimate, she offered this non-answer: ‘I defer to caucus leadership on how we navigate this.’ A simple ‘no’ would have sufficed,” posted Haley on social media Wednesday afternoon.

Ocasio-Cortez and other freshmen Democrats -including Ilhan Omar- have refused to directly condemn Maduro’s regime; instead accusing the Trump administration of “intervening” in the once oil-rich nation.

“As a Democratic-Socialist, I’m wondering what are your thoughts on the Venezuelan crisis? Would you denounce the Maduro regime?” asked one reporter weeks ago.

“I think this is absolutely a complex issue. I think it’s important that we approach this very carefully… I think it’s important that any solution we have centers the Venezuelan people and centers the democracy of Venezuelans first,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro managed to remain in power last week after opposition leader Juan Guaido’s attempted overthrow “failed to follow through,” with experts saying the botched uprising could leave the socialist ruler in power for years.

Guaido -recognized as Venezuela’s interim President by more than 50 countries- blamed the “failure” on senior military officials’ decision to support Maduro’s regime as tens of thousands protested across Caracas.

Sen. Lindsey Graham escalated his war-of-words with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Thursday; saying the Democratic-Socialist would like to spend America’s “last 12 years as Venezuelan socialists.”

“Even worse news, [Ocasio-Cortez] and her new socialist colleagues seem hell-bent on making sure that our last 12 years will be spent as Venezuelan socialists, not Americans,” tweeted Graham.

The Senator was referencing Ocasio-Cortez’ comments this week that claimed the world would likely end in 12 years if the US doesn’t address climate change.
