Ocasio-Cortez says ‘no question’ Trump is a racist

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The so-called Green New Deal that Ocasio-Cortez and other Democratic upstarts are backing include lofty - and expensive - goals like achieving universal health care and converting every facet of the USA economy to renewable sources of energy in 12 years.

Many netizens disagreed with Ocasio-Cortez and argued that she had violated the law with her actions.

She also supports universal health care, tuition-free public college and massive government investment to combat climate change.

She shot back at critics who question her progressive agenda, such as Senator Chris Coons who deemed her proposals "unrealistic". "And, whenever I make a mistake, I say, 'OK, this was clumsy, ' and then I restate what my point was".

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: It's going to require a lot of rapid change that we don't even conceive as possible right now. No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut.

But despite the fact that her supporters had her back, Ocasio-Cortez chose to go the extra mile to prove that she didn't care what conservatives had to say about her. How do we pay for it? "With the same exact mechanisms that we pay for military increases for this Space Force, for all of these ambitious policies".

Ocasio-Cortez said she's proud to be labeled a "radical" and responded "yeah, no question" when asked whether President Trump is a racist.

The top marginal tax rate is now 37 percent, following President Donald Trump's fiscal reforms.

Many social media users came to Ms. Ocasio-Cortez's defense, and the video has inspired memes.

When Cooper asked her how she could say that, she explained further: "When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy".

NowThis likewise posted a video claiming conservatives tried to "shame" Ocasio-Cortez with the clip, but mostly cited tweets praising her cool dance moves - with not much in the way of criticism beyond the original anonymous tweet. But Colby Hall at Mediaite reports liberal activist and Hollywood personality Whoopi Goldberg scolded the freshman Congress member after she criticized establishment Democrats.

"The president certainly didn't invent racism".

"I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up", she tweeted. Now, AOC simply floats the idea of returning to the marginal tax rates of the period of US history that Baby Boomers claim to be idyllic, and look at what happens.

Ocasio-Cortez's tax proposal suggests taxing income above $10 million at 70 percent. Ocasio-Cortez has 1.88 million followers to Pelosi's 1.85 million. "Abraham Lincoln made the radical decision to sign the Emancipation Proclamation". Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programmes like Social Security.
