Former Secretary of State John Kerry re-emerged this week to speak with Congressional leaders on the issue of climate change; saying Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has done more “in one day” than President Trump “has in his lifetime.”
“There are a lot of different proposals on how to proceed… In proposing what she has proposed together with Sen. Markey, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has offered more leadership in one day or in one week than President Trump has in his lifetime on this subject,” said Kerry.
ICYMI: @JohnKerry praises Rep @AOC efforts to combat #climatechange as opposed to #PresidentTrump who refuses to lead on this issue. “Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez has in fact offered more leadership in one day or in one week than #PresidentTrump has in his lifetime on this.

Kerry’s comments come just days after Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ failed to secure a single “Yes” vote in the US Senate, with virtually all Democrats voting “present” on the massive government program.
