Trump isn't focusing on the Green part, however, she's more focused on the New Deal, which includes things like federal job guarantees and universal health care.

Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal proposal, which she launched with the Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts this month, seeks to eliminate greenhouse gas pollution in the United States over the next decade while also addressing inequality with a job guarantee program "to assure a living wage job to every person who wants one". "They want the ability to live in a country where's there's the potential for upward mobility". The irony of someone like Ivanka speaking about income disparity when she's never been on disability, worked two jobs, struggled financially, or earned only minimum wage wasn't lost on the internet.

Eugene Scott of "The Fix" at The Washington Post said: "Has Ivanka Trump ever had a job that her father did not give her?"

Trump later wrote about her recent efforts to assist American workers. "People want to work for what they get", Trump responded to Hilton's question about the Green New Deal.

"A living wage isn't a gift, it's a right", she added. "Workers are often paid far less than the value they create", Ocasio-Cortez continued.

But Ocasio-Cortez wasn't finished with her criticism.

"As a result of the admissions, he has accepted a sanction of a two-year period of ineligibility", read an ICC statement. Jayasuriya was questioned as part of the ICC's investigation of wide scale corruption in Sri Lankan cricket .

The freshman congresswoman then cited data from the Economic Policy Institute claiming that the gap between productivity and a typical worker's pay had increased dramatically since 1973 - around the time of the Arab oil embargo.

The Green New Deal proposal intends to eliminate greenhouse gas pollution in the U.S. over the next decade while also addressing inequality with a job guarantee program.

In the interview, she went on to say America is "doing very well".

Shortly before Ocasio-Cortez came out with her response, Ivanka Trump sought to clarify a report that said she was challenging the idea of a minimum wage.

Raising the minimum wage has been hotly debated around the country for years.
