Ocasio-Cortez: 'Horrific' Trump Is A 'Symptom Of Much Deeper Problems'
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed President Trump on Sunday.
Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Sunday that President Trump is a "symptom of much deeper problems."
She made that comment in response to a tweet from actor George Takei, who had written: "Let's say Trump goes down in disgrace from Mueller or the SDNY or Congressional investigations.
We're left with a big question: How did a guy like that get elected?
Why do so many still support him?
We can't just say 'Fox News' or 'Russians.'
We have serious issues to sort out."
"This is the REAL conversation we need to have as a country," Ocasio-Cortez wrote back.
"As horrific as this president is, he is a symptom of much deeper problems. Even foreign influence plays on nat'l wounds that we refuse to address: income inequality, racism, corruption,a willingness to excuse bigotry."
Minutes later, she posted two more tweets on the matter.
"He can stay, he can go.
He can be impeached, or voted out in 2020," Ocasio-Cortez added.
"But removing Trump will not remove the infrastructure of an entire party that embraced him; the dark money that funded him; the online radicalization that drummed his army; nor the racism he amplified+reanimated."
"In order for us to heal as a nation, we ALL must pursue the hard work of addressing these root causes," she continued.
"It's not as easy as voting.
It means having uncomfortable moments convos w/ loved ones, w/ media, w/ those we disagree, and yes - within our own party, too.
It's on all of us."
