Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has called for an income tax of up to 90 per cent on America's multimillionaires.

Speaking to Yahoo News, Omar argued that tax rates of previous years had risen to the 90 per cent mark for top earners as she doubled down on fellow freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's calls for a 70 per cent rate.

'There are a few things that we can do,' Rep. Omar said. 'One of them, is that we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities. So, 70 percent, 80 percent, we've had it as high as 90 percent. So, that's a place we can start.' 'The one percent must pay their fair share,' she continued.

Omar claimed her radical tax plan would act as a catalyst for programs like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal being proposed by Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez called for zero carbon emissions within 12 years, in an interview with '60 Minutes' on her first day as a member of Congress.

EDITOR’S NOTE: In 2012 Omar said, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel”

Omar is also a strong supporter of the BDS boycott against Israel.
