A group of 45 Democratic lawmakers Wednesday called on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to withdraw the U.S. from the G20 summit next month in Saudi Arabia unless the kingdom promises reforms on a long list of human rights abuses.

"I could not think of a worse selection to host the G20 summit," Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said at a news conference announcing the letter to Pompeo urging the boycott. "Saudi Arabia's government stands in stark contrast with every ideal we claim to uphold as Americans.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., speaks at a virtual news conference Oct. 21, 2020, to urge the U.S. to withdraw from the G20 summit in Saudi Arabia next month unless the kingdom makes dramatic changes to human rights abuses and frees women's rights activists from prison.
