The “Squad” just jumped into the 2020 election with an unbelievable announcement
The far-Left “Squad,” which includes Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has been making waves.
They hope to make their extremism the future of the Democrat Party.
And to do that they just jumped into the 2020 election with an unbelievable announcement.
Despite being extremely unpopular around the country, “the Squad” continues to prove they have a lot of influence in the Democrat Party.
After months of attacking Nancy Pelosi for her lack of support for impeachment, Pelosi has finally caved to their demands.
And now they are trying to exert their influence on the 2020 election, with indications that they will endorse socialist Bernie Sanders for President.
Corbin Trent, who is Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesman, and was also instrumental in her rise to Congress, dropped the hint in a recent interview.
The Daily Caller reports:
A group of freshman Democrats, known as “the “Squad,” will reportedly endorse 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders after the fourth Presidential debate Tuesday night.
New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib all plan on endorsing Sanders, according to Fox News. This comes after news broke during the fourth debate that Ocasio-Cortez would be endorsing Sanders.
“We’re looking forward to Saturday,” Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez said, according to The Washington Post. Sanders said on Tuesday that he would have a “special guest” with him in New York, teasing the freshman Democrat’s appearance.
Ocasio-Cortez was the first member of “the Squad” to reportedly throw her support for Sanders, as Omar and Tlaib also plan on endorsing the 2020 candidate.
This is big news for Bernie Sanders, who has been having a difficult few months in his presidential campaign.
Following a health scare during a campaign stop in Nevada, many felt he was going to drop out of the race all together.
So now he is lower than he ever has been in the polls.
If “the Squad” can breathe new life into his campaign, it will prove that the Democrat Party isn’t just okay with their socialism, but that they outright support it.
