Former White House chief speechwriter Marc Thiessen blasted House Democrats for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s promotion to a foreign affairs committee leadership position, calling it “absolutely appalling.”

Omar, 38, now in her second term in Congress after initially being elected in 2018 and then reelected last year, is a native of Somalia who emigrated to the U.S. with her family as a teenager.
On Thursday, Omar’s office confirmed she was named Vice Chair of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, and Global Human Rights, which “has jurisdiction over disaster assistance; upholding and protecting human rights; and oversight of international health issues, maternal health and child survival, the American Red Cross, the Peace Corps, and regional lending institutions.”
