Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Calls For Donald Trump's Impeachment

The New York congresswoman made it official on Friday after telling the president last Sunday via Twitter why he should be worried.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined the growing chorus of politicians calling for Donald Trump’s impeachment.

The freshman congresswoman from New York made her thoughts known in a very brief tweet on Friday. 

It’s not exactly a surprise, especially after their harsh Twitter exchange last Sunday night.

It started when Trump tweeted out a truncated quote from Ocasio-Cortez that warned how Democrats could lose the 2020 election.

Ocasio-Cortez said: “I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States.”

Trump cut off the last part of her argument, tweeting:

The New York Democrat fired back a few hours later and told the president that impeachment was a very real possibility.

In April, Ocasio-Cortez said she’d support a resolution introduced in March by Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) that would look into whether the House should impeach the president.

Currently, nearly 70 members of the House, overwhelmingly Democrats, have called for an impeachment inquiry of Trump.

This story has been updated to note that Ocasio-Cortez said she would support an impeachment resolution in April.
