Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar revealed her plan for foreign policy on Twitter Tuesday, Including her grand plan of abolishing foreign intervention and military spending amongst other things.
When I say we need something equivalent to the Green New Deal for foreign policy, it's this 👇🏽
— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) May 28, 2019Advertisement
✅End our endless wars and bring our troops home
✅Center foreign policy around human rights, justice and peace
✅Limit our global armed presence in the form of military bases
✅Increase funding for diplomacy, economic and cultural engagement

Omar also blames the current crisis in Venezuela on the United States and wants a “Green New Deal” style overhaul of U.S. foreign policy. Omar argues she is best suited to lead the charge for major foreign policy changes because she has “the perspective of a foreigner.”
The U.S. provides more economic aid around the world than any other country. Currently, truckloads of food and medicine are sitting on the Venezuelan border and waiting for distribution to a starving population. Dictator Nicolas Maduro, who Omar supports, is refusing to allow humanitarian aid into the country. Further, the United States is the number one advocate for human rights around the world.
