Ocasio-Cortez Calls on Children to Help Her 'Fight Trump'
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked for schoolchildren to help her 'kick out Trump'
Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez visited a school over the weekend where she recruited the help of children to help her "kick out Trump."
The New York congressional candidate was filmed speaking to a group of young boys in Queens where she told them she needed their help to "fight Trump."
Ocasio-Cortez told the children in Corona, Queens that she wanted them to help her get elected by telling their family members to vote for her, saying:
“I’m the Democratic nominee out here for Congress so I’m going to go to D.C., and we’re going to be fighting Trump.”

Daily Caller reports:
She was met with raucous applause from the young audience, and a man can be heard saying, “That’s crazy that the kids get so excited about that.”
“This is what we need to do: when you go back home, you talk to your mom, your dad, your aunt, grandma, sisters, anybody over the age of 18 that can vote.
"first you need to ask your parents to vote because if they don’t vote, then we can’t kick out Trump,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Are you going to tell your parents to vote?” Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic socialist, asked the young crowd.
She was met with an overwhelming “yes,” and one boy said bluntly, “I’m going to do it because I don’t like Trump.”
“Tell your parents to vote for Alexandria in November and Jumaane in September,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
