Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reacted to congresswoman Ilhan Omar's recent comments suggesting that the U.S. was partly to blame for the current political crisis in Venezuela, branding her remarks as "ignorant" and "disgusting." 

"So, the nicest thing I can say is it is unbelievable ignorance. It's just factually wrong," Pompeo said on the "Ingraham Angle."

The Democratic 'anti-Trump' congresswoman has voiced her criticisms on the U.S.'s role in Venezuela.

“A lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela, and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today,” Omar told, "Democracy Now!"

“This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela, and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States."

According to Fox News: Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó's called for public employees to stage strikes to put pressure on embattled President Nicolas Maduro, but streets remained calm after two days of clashing.

Pompeo blamed Venezuela's current problems on socialism.

"The problems in Venezuela have been years in the making. It's been a socialist regime, first with Chavez now with Maduro. The destruction of a wealthy nation. A nation with more oil reserves than any other country in the world," Pompeo said.

"For a member of Congress, who frankly, one who sits on an important national committee, making a statement blaming America first in this way, it's not only ignorant, it's disgusting," Pompeo said.

Maduro lost his legal mandate to govern the country in January after his last term was up when the National Assembly denounced fraudulent elections a year ago and swore in its president, Juan Guaidó, as interim president of the country.

As Neon Nettle previously reported, on Tuesday, troops loyal to socialist dictator Maduro's regime plowed into a crowd of protesters with an armored vehicle.
