AOC: 'A Lot of People Have Drank the Poison of White Supremacy'
'Maybe you have a lot of work to do, too'
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said people have soul-searching to do if they believe President Donald Trump is not racist.
“It’s going to take a lot of work to heal,” AOC said.
“I will say that it is possible.”
The congresswoman talked about a man she claimed went from being a white supremacist to helping get people out of that world.
She then claimed that people have a lot of work to do if they don't think Trump is a racist.
“A lot of people have, have drank the poison of white supremacy, um, and that’s what Donald Trump represents,” she claimed.
“Just is, and if, at this point, you haven’t recognized that and you don’t see it, um, maybe you have a lot of work to do, too,” AOC added.
Despite AOC's claims, the Trump administration made reaching out to minorities one of their top priorities.
Trump and his team have also repeatedly condemned white supremacy.
The president also saw support increase in every demographic during the 2020 election except among white men.
During her Instagram live video, AOC made false and inflammatory remarks about Trump’s cabinet.
“Uh, I have a message for anyone who is resigning after Wednesday: Too late! Too late. You’ve, you’re not going to resign after Wednesday and act like you weren’t a part of it."

"Were you secretary on Wednesday? Yes you were, you were a part of it,” she claimed.
“Were you secretary every single step leading up to Wednesday?
"Yes? Then you were a part of it."
"You don’t get to allow for an attack that kills five people, and then afterward, you say, I wasn’t a part of it. Yes, you were.”
Ocasio-Cortez added that Trump’s cabinet secretaries were “forever stained” with blood after the Capitol building riot, which resulted in seven deaths.
AOC failed to note that many of the cabinet secretaries resigned over what happened, with many putting out statements condemning the violence.
“Cowards. Cowards. Couldn’t even stand up in the memory of these officers that they pretend to care about, that they pretend to care about,” she continued.
“I don’t want to hear or see the Republican Party talk about blue lives ever again. This was never about safety for them."
"It was always a slogan, because if they actually cared about rule of law, they would speak up when people break the law. They would speak up."
"They would enforce fairness and equity, but they don’t give a damn about the law.
"They don’t give a damn about order. They don’t give a damn about safety.”
“They give a damn about white supremacy.
"They care about preserving the social order and the mythology of whiteness than the grandeur of our democracy,” she claimed, without evidence.
“That’s what they care about.
"They lust for power more than care about democracy.
"That’s what those people did when they voted to overturn the results of our free and fair elections, and you can barely call them that with the amount of voter suppression that they have engaged in across the country."
"It is generous, to say the least, to call them that.”
