Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become a nemesis of President Trump. She recently tried to call out the president on an issue and Trump's campaign responded in epic fashion.

According to The Daily Wire:

The Trump campaign blasted socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Thursday over her hypocrisy for calling out President Donald Trump over a chant that broke out at his rally in North Carolina after she had refused to denounce a recent terrorist attack against an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility where the attacker left behind a manifesto that seemed to echo her deeply misleading rhetoric that immigrant detention facilities are akin to "concentration camps."

The "send her back" chant, which Trump did not participate in and denounced on Thursday, broke out after Trump read off a list of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) most controversial actions and statements.

 

Ocasio-Cortez responded by saying: "The president put millions of Americans in danger last night. His rhetoric is endangering lots of people. This is not just about threats to individual members of Congress, but it is about creating a volatile environment in this country through violent rhetoric that puts anyone, like Ilhan, anyone who believes in the rights of all people in danger and I think that he has a responsibility for that environment."

The Trump campaign responded in a tweet, writing: "Rep. @AOC spent weeks comparing Americans in ICE uniforms to Nazi concentration camp guards, and then Antifa carried out a terrorist attack against ICE. She refuses to condemn the attack."

  Ocasio-Cortez has chosen to take the easy way out when debating policy issues by comparing everything the GOP and President Trump do to the Holocaust and Hitler.
