Over the course of the last fee weeks, Donald Trump has been needing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on a very specific political point regarding her relationship with the so-called “Squad” of radical freshmen Congresswomen made up of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley,
The President is insinuating that Pelosi has been forced to take her cues from these political newcomers, as establishment politicians within the party find themselves increasingly at odds with the youthful voting block with whom they’ve chosen to align themselves.
In Trump’s digs at Pelosi, the clear meaning is to say that Pelosi is losing her grip on the party.
Now, almost as if to prove the President’s point “The Squad” has jumped out early in the endorsement game for 2020, picking septuagenarian Bernie Sanders as their horse in the race.
At least three members of the “Squad” of far-left freshman members of Congress will reportedly endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for president.
Fox News has learned that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will appear with Sanders on Saturday in Queens, N.Y., at a “Bernie’s Back” rally designed to generate excitement for the senator’s campaign following his recent heart procedure. Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., will also endorse the candidate, Fox News confirmed.
In addition, CNN reported that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., will endorse Sanders as well. It was not immediately clear if Omar and Tlaib will appear at the same Sanders event.
The move preempts any other major endorsements within the 2020 Democratic field, which still stands at nineteen contenders. Rumors of a possible late-entry by former First Lady Hillary Clinton have been ratcheting up in recent weeks as well, making the ice of an en early endorsement a precarious one.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
