President Trump on Thursday slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as “a real beauty” who “knows nothing about the economy.”
Trump said during a speech in Ohio that Democrats want to “inflict a socialist takeover of the US economy known as the horrendous Green New Deal.”
The environmental package “was conceived by a young woman AOC — AOC plus three, I say — AOC, that’s a real beauty, isn’t it?”
“She knows as much about the environment — do we have any young children here? — as that young child over there. I think he knows more. And she certainly knows nothing about the economy,” he said.
Trump said that policies promoted by Ocasio-Cortez, a self-declared “democratic socialist” who represents parts of the Bronx and Queens, could result in the US economy crumbling like Venezuela’s.
“Venezuela was a very wealthy country 20 years ago — one of the wealthiest per capita, one of the wealthiest, tremendous oil reserves, everything. Now they don’t have food. They don’t have water. They don’t have medicine. They don’t have anything. Same thing could happen,” Trump said.
Trump also highlighted Democratic opposition to fracking.
“They want to ban fracking, which will demolish your state. It will demolish Ohio oil and gas jobs. They want to rejoin the disastrous Paris Climate Accord, where you’ll pay billions and billions of dollars for the privilege of getting ripped off by other countries,” he said.
