Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Doubles Down On Calling Trump ‘Racist’ With Throwdown Tweet 🔥

Anderson Cooper sat down with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during 60 Minutes on Sunday night.

During their interview, Cooper asked Ocasio-Cortez, “Do you believe President Trump is a racist?” The freshmen congresswoman quickly replied, “Yeah. Yeah. No question.”

When asked, Ocasio-Cortez clarified her statement:

“The president certainly didn’t invent racism. But he’s certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things.”

She went on to say:

“When you look at the words he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy. When you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it’s night and day.

The White House deputy press secretary said of the interview:

“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s sheer ignorance on the matter can’t cover the fact that President Trump supported and passed historic criminal justice reform and has repeatedly condemned racism and bigotry in all forms.”

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is not having their statements.

Yesterday she reinforced her claim about President Trump’s racism in a tweet.

Mic drop.

The internet is here for Ocasio-Cortez’s comeback.

Thank you for speaking the truth, Representative!
