For some reason, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a rock star to the progressive left. It’s likely that if she were old enough to run for the White House, she’d be the Democratic nominee.
After her staff explained to her that she didn’t meet the age requirements to be president, she decided against a 2020 run (I’m kidding, maybe). Regardless, that hasn’t stopped her from commenting on the race for the Oval Office.
On Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez was on ABC Sunday morning where she gave her two cents about the 2020 race.
"I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States.” –@AOC pic.twitter.com/UmSyp2HhF0

Following her admission that Democrats may be letting 2020 slip through their fingers. President Trump responded and then they went back and forth.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “I think we have a very real risk of losing the Presidency to Donald Trump.” I agree, and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used!

Mr. President, you’re from Queens.
You may fool the rest of the country, but I’ll call your bluff any day of the week.
Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do when the President obstructs justice, advises witnesses to ignore legal subpoenas, & more.
Bye 👋🏽 https://t.co/4O9PNbYFki
