Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is apparently refraining from weighing in on the uprising in Venezuela, saying she'll "defer to caucus leadership."
A report from National Review outlines the split within the Democratic Party regarding foreign policy on whether the U.S. should intervene militarily and whether to recognize Nicolás Maduro or Juan Guaidó as Venezuela's legitimate president.
"Violence is horrible," Ocasio-Cortez said initially to National Review.
When pressed further on whether the U.S. should recognize Maduro or Guaidó, she responded by saying she'll "defer to caucus leadership on how we navigate this.”
This comes a day after her progressive colleague and close friend Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, placed partial blamed on U.S. policies of the Trump administration for the "devastation" in Venezuela.
