Ocasio-Cortez Goes Too Far And Calls Trump A ‘Racist,’ But This Time He Fires Right Back


New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has again taken aim at President Donald Trump.

But this time Trump has fired back and it is amazing.

Ocasio-Cortez spoke to Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes” and in her interview, she declared that the president is a racist.

“Do you believe President Trump is a racist?” Cooper asked.

“Yeah. Yeah. No question,” the 29-year-old replied.

“When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy,” she said.

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

Contacted for comment the Deputy White House Press Secretary said this.

“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s sheer ignorance on the matter can’t cover the fact that President Trump supported and passed historic criminal justice reform…”

“If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees,” she said.

“I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right,” the congresswoman said.

Anderson Cooper shot back that “But being factually correct is important.”

“It’s absolutely important. And whenever I make a mistake,” she contended.

“I say, ‘Okay, this was clumsy.’ and then I restate what my point was. But it’s— it’s not the same thing as— as the president lying about immigrants. It’s not the same thing, at all,” she said.
