In the final installment of her interview with President Trump, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called her "bluff" after using the comments of her progressive darling about the multiplication of calls to remove him.
"Mr. President, you come from Queens, you can deceive the rest of the country, but I will call your bluff any day of the week," the freshman democrat from New York tweeted Sunday night.
"Open an imputation inquiry is exactly what we need to do when the president obstructs the justice, advises witnesses to ignore subpoenas, etc.," continued the Bronx native, adding "Goodbye" and an emoji with trembling hand.
In an interview given to "This Week" on ABC this Sunday, the AOC claimed that Democrats were running "a real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump's benefit" if the party does not want to see it. had no candidate for 2020 who would fight for "a real change of transformation" in the lives of workers. .

"I think now that the president says he is willing to break the law to be re-elected, it transcends partisanship. It transcends party lines, and now it's the rule of law in the United States of America. "
Trump then selectively quoted AOC, tweeting: "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 can not be used legally! "
