Ocasio-Cortez, a former bartender and a political acttivist who sprung to fame after her victory in the Democratic Primary in NewYorks 14th Congressional District, says President Trump is undoubtedly a racist.
In a CBS 60 minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, he asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you believe President Trump is a racist?”
And in her own words, she responded
Yeah, yeah, no question
When asked to elaborate on this matter, she backed her reasons on fake news stories and said the president uses ‘dog whistles’ that are historic of white supremacy.
The WH responded strongly to Ocasio’s accusations of Trump being a racist. So in response, the WH Deputy Press Secretary said
Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s sheer ignorance on the matter can’t cover the fact that President Trump supported and passed historic criminal justice reform and has repeatedly condemned racism and bigotry in all forms.
But Ocasio was not done. As she still took to twitter, calling Trump a racist with her own reasons
The President defended Neo-Nazis who murdered a woman in Charlottesville.
The Dept of Justice sued him for not renting to Black tenants.
He launched his campaign by calling Mexicans “rapists.”
He banned Muslims.
The President is racist. And that should make you uncomfortable. https://t.co/RapKlDB99K

Economic opportunities for blacks and Hispanics have never been better in the United States than under Trump.
