CORTEZ TO IVANKA: ‘Living Wage’ is a ‘Right’ for All Americans Regardless of Job

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.27.19

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired-back at Ivanka Trump Tuesday evening; telling the President’s daughter that a “living wage” is a right for all Americans regardless of the “value they create.”

“As a person who actually worked for tips & hourly wages in my life, instead of having to learn about it 2nd-hand, I can tell you that most people want to be paid enough to live. A living wage isn’t a gift, it’s a right. Workers are often paid far less than the value they create,” she tweeted.

Cortez was referring to Trump’s comments made earlier this week when she said most Americans don’t want a “guaranteed minimum” from the government.

IVANKA TO CORTEZ: The American People Don’t Want ‘Guaranteed Minimums’

Ivanka Trump weighed-in Monday on the Democrats’ recent lurch towards socialist programs and government expansion; saying most Americans simply aren’t interested in “guaranteed minimums.”

“You’ve got people who will see that offer from the Democrats, from the progressive Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Here’s the Green New Deal, here’s the guarantee of a job,’ and think, ‘yeah, that’s what I want, it’s that simple.’ What do you say to those people?” asked Fox News’ Steve Hilton.

“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last 4 years. People want to work for what they get,” Trump told Hilton. “So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want. They want the ability to be able to secure a job. They want the ability to live in a country where’s there’s the potential for upward mobility.”

AOC EXPLODES: Cortez Says She ‘Doesn’t Care Anymore’, Screams ‘I’m the Boss’ on Climate Change

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.25.19

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to deflect criticism of her ‘Green New Deal’ over the weekend; repeatedly yelling “I’m the boss” when it comes to climate-change policy and future legislation.

“You know what? I don’t care anymore. Again, I’m at least trying and they’re not. The power is in the person who’s trying regardless of the success. If you’re trying you’ve got all the power,” claimed Cortez.

“I just introduced ‘Green New Deal’ two weeks ago and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried… You try, you do it. Because you’re not. Until you do it, I’m the boss. How about that?” she yelled.
