Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) responded Wednesday to President Trump’s recent remarks in which he referred to her as a “young bartender.”
“[The] last guy who underestimated me lost,” she told Newsweek. “That’s all I gotta say about that.”
Ocasio-Cortez, a former bartender, defeated longtime incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in the 2018 Democratic primary for her New York House seat and went on to beat Republican Anthony Pappas in the general election.
President Trump on Tuesday mocked Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal proposal during a fundraising dinner for the National Republican Congressional Committee.
“The Green New Deal, done by a young bartender, 29 years old,” Trump said.
