Donald Trump dismissed the youngest member of Congress with a wave of his hand Monday, responding to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's branding him a racist with his own jab: 'Who cares?'
"Nominate that fantastic public servant to take their service to the halls of Congress. Give them that nudge", she said, adding "my brother did it for me".
"I'd say we'd be taxing 70% of Trump's income, but he probably hasn't made more than $10 million in years", she wrote, "and that's the real reason he's hiding his taxes".
Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise taxes to pay for her "Green New Deal", a fiscal juggernaut ostensibly aimed at fighting climate change that could dwarf Great Society expenditures. "I understand guys like this like the back of my hand".
