Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-declared democratic socialist, flubbed a response to CNN host Dana Bash when she was asked if she would endorse Joe Biden for reelection in 2024.
“Before we go, I’d just like to inquire about President Biden’s intentions for a possible 2020 run,” Bash enquired of the congresswoman during the video shared on Twitter.
“If the President decides to run again in 2024,” she added. “I’m focused on getting a majority right now and maintaining a majority this year in 2022, so we’ll cross that road when we come to it. But if there’s a vision, I think that’s something we are all willing to consider and discuss when we get there.”
“That’s not a yes,” Bash replied.
“I mean, I think we should support candidates when we get there. I believe that President Biden has done a wonderful job thus far, and if he were to run again, I think we’d take a look at it,” she added later in the interview. “But right now we should focus on winning an outright majority rather than a presidential election.”
Ocasio-Cortez has a history of failing to vocally support the president. She previously warned that Biden is facing the risk of losing support among left-wing Democrats and younger voters. Hillary Clinton recently criticized Ocasio-Cortez and other “Squad” members for stalling progress in their party’s laws, predicting that failure will cost them elections in 2022.
AOC is known for her strong social media presence and her progressive policies. She has over 11 million followers on Twitter and is a favorite target of conservatives because of her extreme policies and hyptocritical actions.
Her far-left policy goals include the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Ocasio-Cortez has also been accused of being anti-Semitic, and she was one of the main agitators in getting Congresswoman Ilhan Omar re-elected after she made anti-Semitic remarks.
