If President Trump thinks she is crazy, “I think this is a good thing,” U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, said Sunday in an interview for the Spanish language television.

In an interview with “Noticias Telemundo” in Las Vegas, where the freshman Congressman will host a Spanish town hall for a democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez also claims Trump the fear of women is “” especially “strong” and “Latina” women.

“If the President thinks I’m crazy, I think this is a good thing, because I think it would be a problem if he said that he agrees with my ideas, because he has a lot of problems,” Ocasio-Cortez told Noticias Telemundo ‘ s correspondent Guadalupe Venegas. “He is a racist, he is anti-immigrant, but more than that — his government is corrupt. I think he’s afraid of women – strong women, Latina women. The values of the President are very backward.”

“If the President thinks I’m crazy, I think this is a good thing, because I think it would be a problem if he said that he agrees with my ideas, because he has a lot of problems.”

In October, Trump Ocasio-Cortez called a “Wack-Job” on Twitter, to which she replied, “Better than a criminal, traitor of our country.” The social media spat came as the White house, the compliance with the indictment request from the Democrat-led house refused.

Ocasio-Cortez back approved Trump never explicitly told her, he feared, Latina women, but, she claimed, he demonstrated his fears, Twitter messages and in his State of the Union address in February.

In the question to ensure that you and Sanders is in favour of socialism, Ocasio-Cortez sought to make a distinction between what is seen as socialism in the United States and in other countries. Venegas referred to Venezuela, where socialist policies implemented by the dictators Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro, are forced, more than 4 million people to flee in an economic and humanitarian crisis in the country since the end of the year 2015 according to the figures released by the UN refugee Agency.

“If the President or other people want to say this, the first thing I say is, the policy proposals, since we are not in favour, for the complete control of the economy. We are talking about the basic human and economic rights – education, health care, a decent salary,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Here in the United States, these values are the so-called ‘ socialism.’ And for me, this is a comment on the present in the United States. Things that are human rights, called socialism. It is very different from what we see here and in other countries.”

Ocasio-Cortez said she supports Sanders because “he understands that this is not a campaign about a person. It is a campaign about our movement for working families in the United States.” You said it will eventually support whichever candidate the Democratic party presidential nomination, because “we have to help this President out of office.”

“It is not good for a country is as diverse as the United States have such an intolerant President,” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez, will host an event in Las Vegas called “Unidos Con Bernie Reunión Política con Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” on Sunday. Nevada will host the third democratic nomination contest in February, after a primary in New Hampshire and caucus in Iowa at the beginning of next year. Sanders is sending Ocasio-Cortez, endorsed him for the White house in October, appeal to Nevada’s large Latino electorate, and position themselves in front of his progressive rival, Sen. Elizabeth Warren.


Speak a different event for Sanders in California last week, Ocasio-Cortez argued that the United States is a progressive society and has regressed into fascism.

“As much as we like the United States, the richest country in say, in modern history,” Ocasio-Cortez, started at a campaign event in Venice, Calif. “Who cares how much gold is accumulated, if we recognize a progressive company with the resources.


“We are here to say that what we live is not an advanced society,” Ocasio-Cortez said to ask and someone in the crowd: “Why are we not to call it fascism? That’s what it is!”

“It’s fascism!” Ocasio-Cortez, agreed.
