Ilhan Omar Blames US for Venezuela Crisis...Here Was Nikki Haley's Message for Her

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) had the audacity to blame the United States, the country she represents, for the current crisis in Venezuela, a country currently mired in poverty and food shortages. Most observers would point to Nicolas Maduro's socialist policies for his citizens' suffering. But, Omar traced the tragedy elsewhere.

“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 (again, a U.S. representative) said in an interview with "Democracy Now!."

Nikki Haley, who was our ambassador to the UN from 2017 to 2018, set the record straight. 

Opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who was recognized by the U.S. as Venezuela's rightful president, led his supporters in a military uprising on Monday. Maduro's regime responded with soldiers and tanks, injuring dozens of protesters. Shocking video caught one tanker running over a group of citizens. The uprising was not completely successful, but the Trump administration stands with Guaidó and his followers and say Maduro's time is up.
