Press Release

WASHINGTON—Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) released the following statement today, before Congress formally votes to certify the 2020 Presidential election results.

“Let’s be clear: this is nothing less than an attack on our republic. Countries around the world look to the United States as the gold standard for a functioning and thriving democracy.

“When Members of Congress and the President try to overthrow our government, it does not just undermine our own democracy, but the cause of democracy around the world. 

“Objecting to the results to appease President Trump over the voices of millions of voters will have lasting repercussions for generations to come. Every Republican who objects to these fair and accurate results will have their name etched in history for this treasonous act.”
