Ocasio-Cortez offers encouragement to those 'scared for our future' after Trump rally

BY TAL AXELROD - 07/18/19 07:20 AM EDT

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) turned to social media to offer encouragement to “those scared for our future” after President Trump targeted the first-term lawmaker and three progressive colleagues at a rally Wednesday evening.

Trump used his rally in North Carolina to hammer four progressive congresswomen of color known as the “squad” with whom he has carried on an escalating feud in recent days.

In the middle of a diatribe against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a naturalized U.S. citizen who came to the U.S. as a refugee from Somalia, the crowd broke into chants of “send her back.”

Trump also mocked Ocasio-Cortez by refusing to call her by her full name, saying “We’ll call her Cortez. Too much time.”
