Omar Fires Back after Pelosi Calls out Far-left Dems Who Voted against Border Bill

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., on Sunday supported Democrats who blasted a recent interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who criticized the influence of the four freshmen lawmakers who did not give their vote for the $4.6 billion border bill signed into law last week by President Trump, Fox News informed.

Pelosi, who made an interview with the New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, dismissed the influence these representatives wield, saying, “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

Pelosi though of Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

These representatives voted against the border bill mentioning that it did not go far enough, according to the Washington Post, and the bill was simply “throwing more money” at the Trump administration’s “human rights abuses.”

Ocasio-Cortez explained in a tweet addressed to Pelosi, 79, that “public ‘whatever’ is called public sentiment.”

“And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country,” she continued.

Omar wrote in response to Ocasio-Cortez, “Patetico! You know they’re just salty about WHO is wielding the power to shift “public sentiment” these days, sis. Sorry not sorry.”

Pelosi said at the time that the bill would allow resources to get to children held at the border.

“As we pass the Senate bill, we will do so with a battle cry as to how we go forward to protect children in a way that truly honors their dignity and worth,” she wrote in a letter to lawmakers. The New York Times’ headline read, “House Passes Senate Border Bill in Striking Defeat for Pelosi.”
