Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) had a very surprising reaction to the biggest political news of 2019.
On Sunday, Republicans rejoiced and Democrats were left in complete shock like on election night 2016 after Special Counsel Robert Mueller finally revealed his report.
According to Mueller, President Donald Trump and his clan did not conspire or coordinate with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.
Attorney General William Barr said in his letter to the House and Senate Judiciary committees: “The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who is known for being very fiery, shared a few tame tweets claiming that President Trump is a “symptom of much deeper problems” that would not vanish if he was removed or impeached from office.
She began her thread with: “This is the REAL conversation we need to have as a country. As horrific as this president is, he is a symptom of much deeper problems. Even foreign influence plays on nat’l wounds that we refuse to address: income inequality, racism, corruption, a willingness to excuse bigotry.”
AOC went against Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) by adding: “He can stay, he can go. He can be impeached, or voted out in 2020. But removing Trump will not remove the infrastructure of an entire party that embraced him; the dark money that funded him; the online radicalization that drummed his army; nor the racism he amplified+reanimated.”
Ocasio-Cortez stated: “In order for us to heal as a nation, we ALL must pursue the hard work of addressing these root causes. It’s not as easy as voting.”
She concluded by: “It means having uncomfortable moments convos w/ loved ones, w/ media, w/ those we disagree, and yes – within our own party, too. It’s on all of us.”
Trump has been celebrating the shattering news like it was election night all over again.
He said via Twitter: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
AOC is said to be a future candidate for president.
