Axios: More Media for Ocasio-Cortez Than 2020 Dem Candidates

‘Brilliant!’ Trump supports Democrats’ Green Dream to ‘eliminate all planes, cars, cows & military’

"I've noted with great interest the Green New Deal, and we're going to be voting on that in the Senate, give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal", McConnell said.

After President Trump during his El Paso rally Monday night criticized the deal as resembling "a high school term paper that got a low mark", Ocasio-Cortez fired back on Twitter, writing, "Ah yes, a man who can't even read briefings written in full sentences is providing literary criticism of a House Resolution".

Directly after his speech in El Paso, Trump got a peppered answer by Ocasio-Cortez: "Ah Yes, a man who cannot even read the Briefings, which are written in full sentences, provides literary criticism of a Resolution of the house of representatives", back wedged to the 29-Year-old via Twitter.

While Cortez did not specify an exact valuation for her latest Green New Deal, she did add that the amount required would be "incomprehensibly large". Earlier in his speech, he'd suggested the deal would mean "you're not allowed to own cows anymore".

The measure has attracted support from potential and declared presidential candidates in the Senate, including Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris (Calif.), Cory Booker (N.J.) and Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) are backing the deal, and he predicted it will be a "millstone around their necks".

But others aren't as ready to make a decision one way or the other.

The proposals known as the Green New Deal were crafted in conjunction with Senator Ed Markey of MA.

It also moves climate change into the spotlight as the USA heads toward the 2020 presidential election. The initiative has the backing of nearly all the Democrats who have declared they are running in the 2020 presidential election.

Policy adviser to Ocasio-Cortez, Robert Hockett, said the FAQ page was a hoax. "I don't know the details".

In July of 2017, Republicans brought forward a single-payer health care amendment for a vote, which failed 0-57, all Democrats voting against it. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed the maneuver as "pure cynicism, pure politics" at the time.
