Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar surprised the political world recently with effusive praise for President Trump’s response to the global coronavirus pandemic.
But now the far-left representative is advocating for measures so extreme even she’s calling them “radical.”
Per Fox News:
“All private hospitals should be made public for the duration of the virus,” the Minnesota Democrat wrote on Twitter.
Here is maybe a radical idea to deal with some of the pressures our healthcare system is facing:
All private hospitals should be made public for the duration of the virus.

She said a government takeover could help address “some of the pressures our healthcare system is facing.”
Omar offered no specifics on how the takeover of private property would be achieved, but critics on social media quickly reacted that Omar’s plan sounded like communism.
Omar has given her presidential endorsement to Bernie Sanders, a democratic socialist from Vermont who has drawn criticism for past statements in support of the late Fidel Castro’s communist regime in Cuba, as well as Daniel Ortega’s socialist rule in Nicaragua.
