Ever since being elected to Congress, socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been an absolute disaster for the Democratic Party (and the country!)
She’s alienated countless ranking members of the Democratic Party, pushed her radical socialist agenda to the masses (an agenda that would practically bankrupt the country), AND she nixed a deal that would have provided THOUSANDS of jobs to people in her home state of New York.
Apparently that doesn’t matter to Joe Biden. Because Biden is bringing on AOC to join his presidential campaign in hopes of bringing younger, progressive voters to his side.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, Biden confirmed on Tuesday that AOC was working with his campaign to promote her radical $93 trillion “Green New Deal,” which gives the government far more control over the economy and imposes a complete takeover of some private industries.
The move comes after Ocasio-Cortez CHEERED American job losses last month that happened in the energy industry as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Ocasio-Cortez will co-chair a task force for Joe Biden’s campaign on climate change, a source with direct knowledge of the planning tells CNN, a move that adds progressive credentials to the former vice president’s effort to unify the party ahead of the general election,” CNN reported. “The group is one of several task forces being formed to bridge the divide between the polices of Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ended his White House bid last month.”
According to a top aide for AOC, her climate activist friends convinced her to join Biden’s team. Joe Biden’s team later confirmed the merger between the two.
Biden has publicly vowed to pick a woman to be his VP, but there has been no indication that AOC would be his running mate (yet).
In the meantime, this looks like a pathetic attempt by the Biden campaign to get in the good graces of Bernie Sanders supporters… which is Biden’s only shot of defeating President Trump in the fall.
In the meantime, we’ll see if the move works… and if AOC will destroy Biden’s campaign (like she does everything else.)
