Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is on the offensive — and in a rare bipartisan moment, President Donald Trump responded to her Sunday statement with a simple message: “I agree.”
Ocasio-Cortez slammed House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her fellow Democrats, and warned the American people were getting fed up with their political theater.

She said voter frustration with Pelosi was “quite real” and that Democrats were playing a dangerous game.
Ocasio-Cortez said that Democrats need to embrace a message of change and an anti-establishment candidate, or America will re-elect Trump in 2020.
“I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true, transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview with ABC News’ Jon Karl on “This Week.”
“I think that if we elect a president on half-measures that the American people don’t quite understand — the agenda of a president, you know, that says we’re fighting for higher wages but we don’t want a $15 minimum wage, fighting for education but we don’t want to make colleges tuition-free, fighting for women’s rights, et cetera,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “But we don’t want to go all the way with that, then I think we have a very real risk of losing the presidency.”
Trump responded on Sunday night, saying he was in agreement that Democrats were beatable.

The president went on to say that Pelosi and her Democratic allies know they’re weak politically — which is why they’re all talking impeachment —
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “I think we have a very real risk of losing the Presidency to Donald Trump.” I agree, and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used!
