AOC: Trump’s coalition includes ‘racists’ and those who ‘could be susceptible’ to racism

by Joseph A. Wulfsohn | Fox News  |  Published on August 16, 2019

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., weighed in on President Trump’s supporters Thursday, saying a “core part” of the president’s base is composed of “racists” and “people who could be susceptible to racist views.”

She also said many discussions on racism devolve into defenseness because “we do not talk about or educate people on recognizing racism.”

The far-left freshman congresswoman made the remarks during an appearance on the podcast “Pod Save America,” hosted by former Obama administration staffer Jon Favreau.

At one point, Favreau asserted that “there’s racism there” when crowds gather for Trump rallies. But Ocasio-Cortez said it’s more important to discuss the broader term “racism” than whether an individual or group is “racist.”
