Ocasio-Cortez Says Donald Trump Is ‘Afraid’ of ‘Latina Women’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said during a recent interview that President Donald Trump is afraid of “Latina women.” 

In a Spanish-language interview with Noticias Telemundo conducted on Sunday, the freshman congresswoman addressed Trump’s disparaging remarks about her in October, when he characterized her as a “wack job.”

Telemundo billed Ocasio-Cortez’s chat with Noticias Telemundo network correspondent Guadalupe Venegas as her first with a Hispanic outlet.

“If the president thinks I’m crazy, then I think that’s good,” Ocasio-Cortez told Venegas.


Ocasio-Cortez, who sat down with Noticias Telemundo moments before a scheduled event in Las Vegas with Sen. Bernie Sanders, said “it’d be a problem” if Trump agreed with her ideas “because he has a lot of issues.”

“He’s a racist and he’s anti-immigrant, but more than that, his administration is very corrupt,” the progressive lawmaker said.

“I think he’s afraid of women, of strong women, of Latina women.”

Ocasio-Cortez, a vehement critic of Trump’s immigration policy, is no stranger to sparring publicly with the president.

In October, following Trump’s remarks calling her a “wack job,” the New York Democrat said Trump was a “criminal who betrays our country.”

And earlier this month, Ocasio-Cortez shot back after Trump lumped her in with a group of lawmakers he termed the “Do-Nothing Democrats.”
