Dianne Feinstein Fumbles in Meeting With Young Climate Activists Over Green New Deal

From proposing the Green New Deal - a congressional resolution that aims to address climate change - to making sure everyone in her team makes at least $52,000 a year, Ocasio-Cortez and her politics have taken center stage.

"I don't think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something", Trump said during the interview with Fox News. "If you think that is how you win back the White House, I'm here to tell you I've spent a lot of time in red states, I'm from a red state, that is a losing argument".

'So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want.

Ocasio-Cortez made the decision as she saw many young staffers on Capitol Hill working grueling hours at near-pittance salaries (with the average rent cost $2,000 per month in Washington D.C.), which often required them to work side jobs on nights and weekends in the service industry.

"They want the ability to live in a country where there's the potential for upward mobility".

People hit back at Ivanka saying "has she ever had a job that her father did not give her?"

Cortez and fellow Democrats unveiled their "Green New Deal" two weeks ago; calling for a total transformation of America's energy, transportation, agriculture, and infrastructure sectors.

Abby Huntsman, the daughter of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., noted her concern with Ocasio-Cortez's statement on "The View".

Trump and Ocasio-Cortez do have one thing in common - their use of social media to promote their brand and message. I support a minimum wage.

The congresswoman has been vocal about her feelings toward President Donald Trump, recently telling 60 Minutes in January there is "no question" that the president is racist. I do not however believe in a minimum guarantee for people "unwilling to work" which was the question asked of me.
