Rep. Ilhan Omar Endorses Bernie Sanders for President

“I have had the opportunity to work with Bernie Sanders up close on major policy initiatives. This summer, we introduced a bill to cancel all 1.6 trillion dollars in student debt—paid for with a small tax on Wall Street speculation. And this week, we announced another bold plan to provide school meals year-round to every student who wants one. I have seen the values that motivate him and his commitment to building a movement that represents marginalized communities across this country.

“Bernie is leading a working class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity and geography,” Omar continued. “That is why he is fighting to cancel all student debt. That is why he is fighting to make all school meals universal. That is why he is fighting for a humane immigration policy that treats immigrants as human beings and not criminals. And it’s why Bernie is fighting to end our forever wars and truly prioritize human rights in our foreign policy—no matter who violates them. And it’s why I believe Bernie Sanders is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in 2020.” – Rep. Ilhan Omar
