Trump Ridicules AOC: ‘If They Beat Me With the Green New Deal I Deserve to Lose’
President Donald Trump appeared to be in “insult comic” mode during an address to the National Republican Congressional Committee’s annual spring dinner.
Former Vice President Joe Biden was not the only subject of his derision, so to was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her congressional climate resolution, the Green New Deal.
Trump mocked the environmental bill, which has been a source of near-constant mockery on his favorite cable news outlet Fox News, saying “The Green New Deal done by a young bartender 29 years old. A young bartender, wonderful young woman…The Green New Deal,” adding “the first time I heard it I said that’s the craziest thing.”
Trump then ridiculed more senior Senators who support the Green New Deal out of fear of AOC’s popularity.
“You have senators that are professional, that you guys know, that have been there for a long time,” Trump offered, adding “white hair everything perfect and they are standing behind her and they are shaking they are petrified of her…We support the Green New Deal!”
