Fellow conservative commentator Beck retweeted O'Reilly's comment, adding that he believes Ocasio-Cortez seems "genuine".

When asked about President Trump's gleeful reaction over Crowley's defeat, tweeting that Crowley was a "big Trump hater" who should have been "nicer" to his president, Ocasio-Cortez said Mr. Trump shouldn't count on her support.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old Democratic socialist who unexpectedly toppled Rep.

US representative from Wisconsin proposes dismantling of ICE
Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which critics say has treated some would-be immigrants cruelly and unfairly. But the family separation policy has been a watershed for attracting a broader spectrum of demonstrators, she said.

In the midst of what has been an incredibly upsetting week of news for many Americans, New Yorkers had a reason to rejoice as they witnessed a historic victory in the city's 14th congressional district. One of the many factors contributing to Ocasio-Cortez's spirited, grassroots-powered win?

Pressley, 44, sent campaign staff to assist Ocasio-Cortez in her get-out-the-vote efforts and was quick to congratulate her on Tuesday.

Turning Point USA founder and president Charlie Kirk said there is a rising socialist movement in America, because socialism is easy to sell to millennials who "want to believe in utopia". It's an outward display of Ocasio-Cortez's roots as a third-generation, working-class Bronxite with Puerto Rican heritage. "A good thing for any politician".
