(FREEBEACON) — Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Saturday touted "every Democratic presidential candidate" supporting her Green New Deal resolution.
Ocasio-Cortez, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, spoke at her inaugural ceremony in the Bronx, where she touted her support from 2020 Democrats in the battle against climate change.
"The Green New Deal that we introduced two weeks ago, which was an amazing step forward, when we first were engineering it before it was introduced they were saying, ‘She's divisive. She's too confrontational. No one will sign onto a single piece of legislation that she introduced,'" said Ocasio-Cortez.
