Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar seemed much more upbeat than usual about the prospects of Joe Biden’s candidacy for president because forces of the left have “had the opportunity to move his platform to be more progressive.”
Omar, who recently endorsed the former Vice President along with other Muslim American leaders, claimed that Biden’s platform is now the “most progressive platform” that any Democratic candidate for president has “ever run on.”
“Right now we have a candidate for president within the Democratic Party who I just endorsed and brought along many of our constituents to get behind and support Joe Biden as the president,” Omar said.
“Because I understand we’ve now had an opportunity to move his platform to be more progressive — the most progressive platform a president has ever run on, on the Democratic side,” she declared.
