Pence: Omar Has ‘No Place’ on House Foreign Affairs Committee

During an interview Friday on Fox News’ Fox & Friends, Vice President Mike Pence called for Rep. Ilhan Omar to be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“Look, Ilhan Omar has made statements, anti-Semitic comments, statements against our most cherished ally, Israel, that ought to be rejected by every American,” Pence said. “And frankly the fact that very recently she has been trying to blame the United States of America for the deprivation and poverty brought on by the dictatorship in Venezuela.”

“Congresswoman Omar has no place on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Democratic leadership ought to remove her,” he added.
