Kirsters Baish’s Opinion| Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York sent out a vicious tweet aimed at President Donald Trump on Sunday after he agreed with remarks that she had made saying that there is “a very real risk” that he will take the 2020 election if Democrats are not successful in their attempts to impeach him.
The Daily Caller reports:
Ocasio-Cortez believes Democrats will lose the 2020 election if Trump is not impeached, according to an interview Sunday with Jonathan Karl on ABC News’s “This Week.” Trump quoted her on Twitter after the interview, saying that he agrees Democrats have a risk of losing to him.
Trump gloated in a tweet, “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!”

Ocasio-Cortez wrote in response, “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.

The Daily Caller explains, “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.”
Via Fox News:
In her earlier interview, Ocasio-Cortez called an impeachment investigation a “constitutional responsibility.” That prompted Karl to press Ocasio-Cortez on reports that progressive Democrats are frustrated with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who has resisted calls for impeachment proceedings.
“I think it’s quite real,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I believe that there is a very real animus and desire to make sure that we are — that — that we are holding this president to account.”
A growing progressive anger also has targeted former Vice President Joe Biden, who said earlier this month he could “no longer support” the Hyde Amendment, which he had backed for decades. Biden said the law makes a woman’s right to an abortion “dependent on someone’s ZIP code.”
