Ocasio-Cortez Takes a Swipe at Trump’s Claims of Personal Wealth

Ocasio-Cortez Takes a Swipe at Trump’s Claims of Personal Wealth

'Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez called you a racist, ' the journalist yelled over the hum of Marine One on the South Lawn.

Anderson Cooper: How can you say that?

Trump fielded bipartisan backlash after he initially condemned the violence "on many sides" without singling out white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

After Anderson Cooper called Ocasio-Cortez's 70 percent top marginal tax rate suggestion and other bold progressive proposals a "radical agenda" during the "60 Minutes" interview, the NY congresswoman responded, "If that's what radical means, call me a radical".

Ocasio-Cortez will be interviewed by The Intercept's Briahna Gray at the festival's "Cities, Governments, and Politics" panel.

"Who cares? Geez", Trump said, moving onto another question.

Prosecutors indict Ghosn on two new charges
Renault, which is the biggest shareholder in Nissan, has refrained from removing Ghosn, instead appointing interim replacements. The court rejected an appeal by Ghosn's lawyers for his release from detention, and on Thursday turned down another appeal.

On Friday, CBS News announced the new slate of reporters and producers who would cover the 2020 campaign.

By January 8, Ocasio-Cortez was laying out her case on Twitter. "I understand guys like this like the back of my hand".

She also took a shot at Trump's supposed wealth by saying he probably has nothing to fear from her proposal to fund a new environmental protection plan with a 70 percent income tax on the super wealthy.

She became a progressive star last summer after she pulled off a stunning upset primary victory against 10-term former Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.), former chair of the House Democratic Caucus.

Republicans and even some Democrats swooned when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pitched a 70 percent tax rate on the rich - but a new poll out Tuesday showed that most Americans like the idea. She easily won the general election in the November midterms.
