Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) labeled President Trump a “white supremacist” after his first presidential debate against Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday.
Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a clip of Trump refusing to condemn white supremacy and telling the Proud Boys, a group labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group, to “stand back and stand by.”
“Donald Trump is a white supremacist,” she tweeted.
“People have been warning about this for a long time,” she continued. “They were ridiculed, called hyperbolic & radical — not bc they were wrong, but bc others couldn’t accept that our country elected a supremacist as President.”
“This is fascism at our door,” she concluded.
