Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to condemn Nicolas Maduro’s brutal socialist regime Monday; calling the humanitarian and financial crisis taking place in Venezuela a “complex issue.”
“As a Democratic-Socialist, I’m wondering what are your thoughts on the Venezuelan crisis? Would you denounce the Maduro regime?” asked one reporter.
“I think this is absolutely a complex issue. I think it’s important that we approach this very carefully… I think it’s important that any solution we have centers the Venezuelan people and centers the democracy of Venezuelans first,” said Cortez.
