"We are pleased Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recognizes she is NOT a leader on Israel in Congress", the group said in a statement.

In an interview on Yahoo News' "Skullduggery" podcast, Ocasio-Cortez said of Trump: "I think you could reach in a bag and pull so many things out that are impeachable of this President". Betty McCollum even has a proposal that she's advanced asking the us not to fund child detention, Israeli child detention of Palestinian children.

Asked on Yahoo News' Skullduggery Podcast whether USA policy toward Israel should change following the Israeli premier's election eve promise to annex West Bank settlements, the NY lawmaker said that should be a consideration. She also backed off her support for a two-state solution within three days of calling herself "a proponent of a two-state solution".

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose social media abilities allowed her 2018 grass root congressional campaign to flourish, said Sunday she has deleted her personal Facebook page, adding social media is a "public health risk to everybody".

"I hope to play a facilitating role in this conversation and a supportive role in this conversation", she added.

"We recommend she engage with Dem leaders Eliot Engel, Nita Lowey, & Congressman Ted Deutch before contemplating the future of United States military aid to Israel".

When asked who she thought would end up on the Iron Throne, AOC said that - ideally - she'd like to see the monarchy give way to democracy. "I grew up with that Yankees dream team, like, [Derek] Jeter, [Jorge] Posada, like, Mariano Rivera", she said. "Middle Eastern politics is not exactly at my kitchen table every night". "But I also know that there have been people leading on this for a long time, like Congresswoman [Betty] McCollum".

Last month during a House Financial Services Committee meeting, Rep. Barr invited Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to tour a coal mine with him.
