Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested Friday that the United States is to blame for catastrophic floods in other countries around the world.
“When you see flooding happening in a country abroad and you are urgently raising money for these lives to be saved, you don’t think about, ‘How have I contributed to the climate warming that has led to these floodings and these catastrophes that are taking place abroad?'” Omar said at a Democracy Now! and Rising Majority event.
Earlier this month, Omar expressed a similar concern when she warned that climate change inaction will lead to the elimination of human existence.
