Ilhan Omar calls for 'end of Western imperialism'

Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota Ilhan Omar (pictured) gave on Sunday her support to United States Senator Bernie Sanders for the 2020 presidential election, stressing the urgency of "mass movement of the working class" that needs to take down President Donald Trump and end "Western imperialism."

Speaking at a Sanders rally in Minneapolis, Omar said: "The current occupant of the White House likes to talk about making America great. But, every action, and virtually every word out of his mouth, is an attack on the very values and ideals that make this country a beacon of hope for me and the people around the world."

Omar added she is "excited for President Bernie Sanders," adding that "here in Minnesota, we don't just welcome refugees - we sent them to Congress."
