During a virtual town hall Friday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she disagrees with Biden having a “very optimistic view of the Republican Party”
“This is one area where I believe that there’s kind of a track record of some slight disagreement between the president-elect and myself,” Ocasio-Cotez said “and I say that, you know – this is it, it’s not a fight – it’s just a disagreement.”
“I believe that President-elect Biden has a very optimistic view of the Republican Party. He, he has made statements on, you know, once Trump is gone, they will see the error of their ways. And I applaud his optimism but I disagree with his assessment,” she added.
This week, AOC criticized Biden for proposing $1,400 stimulus checks instead of $2,000, arguing it’s not enough.
“$2,000 means $2,000. $2,000 does not mean $1,400,″ AOC told The Washington Post.
