2.) Ilhan Abdullahi Omar
Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar wasted no time attacking President Trump and democratically-elected leaders across the world for recognizing Juan Guaidó as Venezuela's rightful leader.
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.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) January 25, 2019
Omar went so far as to compare Maduro's sham reelection to the 2016 presidential election.
"None of us are happy with the kind of president we have. Now if a foreign country just said, 'Well, we think because Hillary got lots of votes, we're just going to acknowledge Hillary as the leader of the United States.' We would have a problem with that.'"
