Netanyahu has vowed to 'apply sovereignty' to Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Rep.Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed during an interview on Sunday that the possibility of cutting economic or military aid to Israel is "on the table." 

Speaking on the Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast, the congresswoman said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's election comes following a disturbing trend of "authoritarianism across the world" before calling the leader a "Trump-like figure."

Netanyahu has vowed to “apply sovereignty” to Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

He told Israeli Channel 12 TV that, “we will go to the next phase to extend Israeli sovereignty."

"I will impose sovereignty, but I will not distinguish between settlement blocs and isolated settlements," he said, according to AP.

"From my perspective, any point of settlement is Israeli, and we have responsibility, as the Israeli government. I will not uproot anyone, and I will not transfer sovereignty to the Palestinians."

According to Fox News: The annexation of large parts of the West Bank could damage hope for an Israeli-Palestinian deal on the terms of a Palestinian state on lands Israel captured in 1967.

The New York Times reported that American officials had discouraged any Israeli attempt to extend sovereignty in the disputed territory.

In March, President Donald Trump declared that the United States would fully recognize Israel’s sovereignty over Golan Heights.

Trump's tweet came during a visit of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Jerusalem.

"After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel's Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and regional stability", Trump said via Twitter.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to the President's tweet thanking him for his support.

Ocasio-Cortez in July was forced to explain her comment on PBS’ “Firing Line” when she referred to the “occupation of Palestine.”

Republicans took the comment to criticize her knowledge on the region.

The host of the show, Margaret Hoover, asked a follow-up question and Ocasio-Cortez admitted, “I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue,” but said she believed in a two-state solution.
