“You’ve got people who will see that offer from the Democrats, from the progressive Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Here’s the Green New Deal, here’s the guarantee of a job,’ and think, ‘yeah, that’s what I want, it’s that simple.’ What do you say to those people?” Hilton asked Ivanka Trump on Fox News.
“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last 4 years. People want to work for what they get,” Trump replied.
“So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want. They want the ability to be able to secure a job," she said.
"They want the ability to live in a country where’s there’s the potential for upward mobility.”
Trump was also asked about the coming 2020 election and the sense that it would be framed as a battle between capitalism and socialism.
“I think fundamentally if you ask yourself the question, ‘are we better today than we were yesterday or we were 2 years ago?’ The answer is, undoubtedly, yes,” Trump told Hilton.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t an authentic socialist until SHE agrees to a paycheck equal to the same 52k she pays her staff. “From each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs.” Don’t be a hypocrite, step up!— Dan Bongino (@dbongino) February 26, 2019
“So, as an American, families sitting down and thinking about their financial situation relative to a month ago or a year ago, America is doing very well, and it stands in quite sharp contrast to the rest of the world.
"So, not only are we doing well, much of the world has slowed down in terms of the pace of their growth.”
The figure estimates that each American household would pay $36,100 to $65,300 per year to meet the Green New Deal’s goals, the AAF report claims.
The deals goals include “net-zero” emissions, guaranteed jobs, universal health care, widespread high-speed rail and upgrading every building.
This means that the Green New Deal could cost 63 percent of the median to nearly 106 percent of the earnings of the average American household each year.
