Ocasio-Cortez says that's false – and she should know. A preview clip of the interview shows "The Next Revolution" host Steve Hilton ask, "You've got people who will see that offer from the progressive Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, here's the Green New Deal, here's a guarantee of a new job.

Describing her expertise “as a person who actually worked for tips and hourly wages”, Ocasio-Cortez essentially pointed out that Ivanka Trump has never had to work a minimum wage job in her life and that her comments on the Green New Deal jobs guarantee rang hollow. “Imagine attacking a jobs guarantee by saying ‘people prefer to earn money’,” Ocasio-Cortez later tweeted. Trump had waded into the Green New Deal debate on Monday during an interview with Steve Hilton on Fox News. “I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something.

On Saturday, Ivanka Trump attended the Munich Security Conference, with one of the questions raised during the discussion being women’s economic empowerment as a “catalyst for global peace, national security and economic prosperity”, as she put it in her Twitter post. She then shared a picture from the joint dinner with the high-profile speakers and guests, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and captioned it in German, translating her previous post, which was most inspiring and filled with gratitude. Many thought the positive vibes that Ivanka had expressed were not in the least shared by the German chancellor. One commenter even suggested that Merkel “despises” her, presumably judging by the expression on her face: The feeling is not mutual, I'm sure. — Theo W Hamilton (@theowhamilton) 16 февраля 2019 г. … [Read more...] about Twitter ROFLs as Ivanka Trump Praises Merkel for Championing Women’s Empowerment
