Rep. Ilhan Omar continued to ruffle feathers in Washington, DC this week; bizarrely claiming President Trump was promoting a Venezuela ‘coup’ to install “far right” politicians as socialist President Nicolas Maduro’s regime crumbled.
“A US backed coup in Venezuela is not a solution to the dire issues they face. 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,” she tweeted.

Omar’s Twitter account made national headlines this week when she posted -then quietly deleted- a message claiming the Covington Catholic students were using “racist chants” in a now-debunked viral video.
BACKLASH: Dem. Rep Who Claims Israel ‘Hypnotizes the World’ Appointed to Foreign Affairs Committee
Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has been appointed to the House Foreign Affairs Committee; sparking outrage from those familiar with her previous remarks surrounding the State of Israel.

“It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a member who has a documented history of making anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks,” Rep. Steve Scalise said Thursday.
Omar recently defended her scathing critique of Israel; writing back in 2012 “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
