Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says ‘No Question’ Trump Is Racist
New Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said there is “no question” that President Donald Trump is racist.
In an interview with CBS News, Ms Ocasio-Cortez based her claim on “words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy”.
In a statement, the White House hit back at the New York lawmaker’s “sheer ignorance on the matter”.
Ms Ocasio-Cortez took office last week as the youngest ever US congresswoman.
