Ocasio-Cortez Tweets Back at Trump: ‘I’ll Call Your Bluff’


Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted back at President Donald Trump Sunday after he agreed with comments she made that there is a “very real risk” he will be re-elected if Democrats don’t impeach.

If Trump is not impeached, Ocasio-Cortez believes that Democrats will lose the presidency to Trump in the 2020 election, according to an interview she had Sunday with Jon Karl on ABC News’ “This Week.”

Trump quoted her on Twitter after the interview, saying that he agrees that the Democrats have a risk of losing to him.

“Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do,” according to Ocasio-Cortez’s response to Trump on Twitter. She ended her tweet with hand-waving emoji.

As can be expected, that generated a considerable Twitter response.

Some of it made fun of Ocasio-Cortez.

But of course, she has her fans, too.

Ocasio-Cortez also said that Democrats have to choose a progressive 2020 nominee. If not, the risk of losing to Trump is real, according to her interview Sunday.

The 29-year-old has been vocal about impeaching Trump, and she called impeachment a “constitutional responsibility” in an earlier interview according to Fox News.
