Ocasio-Cortez gave multiple examples on Twitter of what she deemed to be Trump's racist behavior.
Ocasio-Cortez’s condemnation of the president came days after she spoke frankly about him in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes.”
“Yeah. Yeah. No question,” Ocasio-Cortez replied when asked if Trump is racist.
“The president certainly didn’t invent racism, but he’s certainly given a voice to it and expanded it, and created a platform for those things,” she said.
In response to CBS News, the White House said the freshman lawmaker’s “sheer ignorance on the matter can’t cover the fact that President Trump supported and passed historic criminal justice reform.”
