Omar Believes US Is Waging Coup in Venezuela

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. 

The U.S. joins Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Peru, Ecuador, and Guatemala in recognizing Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president.

“The people of Venezuela have courageously spoken out against Maduro and his regime and demanded freedom and the rule of law,” Trump said in a statement Wednesday. “I will continue to use the full weight of United States economic and diplomatic power to press for the restoration of Venezuelan democracy.”
