Ilhan Omar made one crazy 2020 decision that has Democrats panicking
The Democrat Party’s Presidential nominating contest is not playing out like anyone planned.
Top party officials worry the field of candidates is far weaker than they first thought and that the eventual nominee will struggle to beat Donald Trump.
And then Ilhan Omar made one crazy 2020 decision that has Democrats panicking.
Ilhan Omar and two of her fellow “Squad” members endorsed Bernie Sanders for President, Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez backing Sanders jolted his campaign with a boost of energy after pundits largely wrote off Sanders’ bid.
At a campaign rally in Minnesota, Omar explained why she supported Sanders.
Omar went on to claim that a “movement” must be built in order for Sanders to take the White House from President Donald Trump.
“Here’s the cold truth: We can’t achieve any of these goals if we don’t build a movement that is representative of all of our aspirations, all of our pain, and all of our shared trauma,” Omar said. “That is why we must build a mass movement of the working class that transcends faith, age, gender, and background.”
“That’s what we fight for here in Minnesota every single day and that’s the movement that Senator Bernie Sanders is building” Omar continued. “Bernie knows that systematic change in this country has never taken place without millions of people organizing to demand that change.”
“That is the history of the labor movement, the history of the women’s liberation movement, that is the history of the civil rights movement, and the LGBTQ movement, and the disability rights
under equal justice movement,” the freshman Minnesota Congresswoman added.
Democrats are dreading this news.
Omar and her fellow “Squad” members throwing their full support behind Sanders means the Vermont Senator is likely to stay in the nominating contest until very end.
“The Squad” sees Sanders as a vehicle to drive the party to the left and they are supporting his ideological crusade to impose socialism on America more so than to see a Democrat win in 2020.
Sanders taking his campaign to the convention helped divide the Democrat Party in 2016.
With the “Squad’s” help, Sanders could pull off a two-fer: Sanders could stay in the race until the bitter end and push the party farther to the left and fracture the Left’s coalition.
Both of those outcomes would ensure Donald Trump wins again in 2020.
