'The reason that these attacks happen, is to wear us down,' AOC claimed

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told liberal activist Jane Fonda that “it’s not easy” being attacked by President Donald Trump during an interview for Greenpeace USA.

Fonda asked the congresswoman:

"You and I have both experienced being vilified, including by presidents, and so I’m going to ask you a question that I get asked a lot: How do you handle it?”

“Well, you know, it’s not easy, I think is the first thing to communicate,” AOC responded.

“The reason that these attacks happen — whether they’re on journalists, whether they’re on progressive politicians, whether they’re on women, people of color, etc. is to exhaust us."

"It is to wear us down.”

The congresswoman said that people like her “don’t necessarily have the traditional institutional resources” that people “born into aristocratic families” have.

“The way that I try to endure, honestly, the thing that really helps me is the grassroots support that we have.”

The “squad” member, who continues to promote her Green New Deal, said it would be “really hard to continue” fighting for these issues if it “was not politically popular, was not supported by everyday people [and] if people were not organizing on the ground to support this work.”

She then told Fonda that the “power of grassroots movements” made her feel that she is “part of something bigger” than herself.

Earlier his week, the radical Democrat lashed out at Trump, accusing him of sexism for calling her "AOC."

AOC responded to President Trump mentioning her so-called "AOC Plus 3 Squad" of House lawmakers during Thursday's night's final presidential debate.

“I wonder if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature,” she tweeted.

"Women notice. It conveys a lot," AOC added.

“AOC is a name given to me by community & the people."

"Y’all can call me AOC,” she continued.

"Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as ‘Congresswoman,’ ‘Representative,’ etc. Basic respect 101."
