Trump calls AOC a ‘real beauty’ and says she ‘knows nothing about economics’ as he slams Democrats’ Green New Deal

  • Trump’s comments came during a speech in the battleground state of Ohio 
  • He accused Democrats of ‘inflicting a socialist takeover of the US economy’ 
  •  The Green New Deal is a proposed plan to tackle climate change by reducing America’s reliance on fossil fuels 
  •  Trump said in his speech yesterday: ‘[The Green New Deal] was conceived by a young woman AOC — AOC plus three, I say — AOC, that’s a real beauty, isn’t it?’

President Donald Trump yesterday called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a ‘real beauty’ who ‘knows nothing about the economy’. 

The president’s comments came during a speech in the battleground state of Ohio, where he accused Democrat leaders of ‘inflicting a socialist takeover of the US economy known as the horrendous Green New Deal’. 

The Green New Deal is a proposed plan to tackle climate change, which was initially tabled by Ocasio-Cortez – who minored in economics at college – and Senator Edward J. Markey of Massachusetts.  

Trump said in his speech yesterday: ‘[The Green New Deal] was conceived by a young woman AOC — AOC plus three, I say — AOC, that’s a real beauty, isn’t it?’

‘She knows as much about the environment — do we have any young children here? — as that young child over there. I think he knows more. And she certainly knows nothing about the economy,’ he added.  

President Donald Trump yesterday called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a ‘real beauty’ who ‘knows nothing about the economy’.

Trump suggested that the proposal, which aims to wean the US off of fossil fuels, could result in the American economy regressing, similarly to Venezuela. 

 ‘Venezuela was a very wealthy country 20 years ago — one of the wealthiest per capita, one of the wealthiest, tremendous oil reserves, everything. Now they don’t have food. They don’t have water. They don’t have medicine. They don’t have anything. Same thing could happen,’ Trump said. 

Trump went on to criticize the Democrat’s stance on fracking, the process of drilling into the earth to release gases to use as energy. 

‘They want to ban fracking, which will demolish your state. It will demolish Ohio oil and gas jobs. They want to rejoin the disastrous Paris Climate Accord, where you’ll pay billions and billions of dollars for the privilege of getting ripped off by other countries,’ he said.

Trump lashed out at Ocasio-Cortez during a campaign stop in Texas last week, again criticizing the Green New Deal. 

In his remarks, made with oil rigs and a giant American flag in the background, Trump warned Texans that Democrats in power would bring Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘disastrous’ Green New Deal, a return to the Paris Climate Accord, and the end of fracking.  

‘The radical left is fighting to abolish American energy,’ he warned.

‘If these far left politicians ever get into power they will abolish not only your industry but the economy,’ he said.
