Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Rep. Ilhan Omar hits Democrats over COVID relief, admits Americans received more aid under Trump”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar lamented Friday that more Americans received a greater amount of coronavirus-related economic aid under former President Donald Trump than they will receive under President Joe Biden.

Despite Democrats now controlling Congress and the White House, Democrats thus far have failed to deliver on their promises of distributing the economic aid they say Americans desperately need.

Speaking on CNN Friday, the Minnesota Democrat lamented that Trump and Republicans were willing to give Americans more aid than Democrats are now.

"I see it as a really disappointing development. We obviously are now ultimately sending money to less people than the Trump administration and the Senate majority Republicans," Omar admitted.

"This is not the promise that we made, this is not what we are given the opportunity to be in the majority in the Senate and to have the White House," Omar continued. "And so ultimately it is a failure when we compromise ourselves out of delivering on behalf of the American people and keeping our promises."
