US Congresswoman from Minnesota Ilhan Omar officially endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at his campaign rally in Minneapolis on Sunday.

"We need a president who will fight every day for working people, for those who are regularly disenfranchised, and purposefully left behind. We need a president who'll put an end to the corruption, to the greed, and the systems that allow inequality to continue," said Omar, addressing the packed arena.

"I am beyond honoured and excited for a president who'll fight against western imperialism," she said, adding that she was "excited for President Bernie Sanders."

Sanders criticised US President Donald Trump, calling him "a pathological liar, who is running the most corrupt administration in history."

"This is a president who deserves to be impeached and will be impeached," said Sanders.
