President Donald Trump gave his second State of Union address on Tuesday evening.
He touched on all of the topics one would expect him to: the economy, national security, the wall/barrier on the southern border, and domestic policy, including a strong defense of the unborn.
But one person who did not much approve of Trump’s speech was media darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Why should I be “spirited and warm” for this embarrassment of a #SOTU?
Tonight was an unsettling night for our country. The president failed to offer any plan, any vision at all, for our future.
We’re flying without a pilot. And I‘m not here to comfort anyone about that fact. https://t.co/7bu3QXFMnC

Ocasio-Cortez’s chilly reaction may have had something to do with Trump’s bold condemnation of socialism.
Trump: “Here in the United States, we are alarmed by the new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and Independence and not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free."

Of course, Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders have openly pushed for socialistic policies.
Following the president’s speech, Ocasio-Cortez went on MSNBC to unleash her fury and anger.
