Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has brushed off claims that she is jealous of the recent attention that other members of her so-called "AOC Squad" have been receiving without her.

President Donald Trump blasted Squad leader Ocasio-Cortez after her second in command Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and lower-level footsoldier Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), made headlines for their anti-Semitic antics in Israel this week.

In a Friday tweet, Trump said: "Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this!"

“Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party," President Trump wrote on Twitter.

According to Fox News, the New York Democrat apparently wasn't buying it.

She simply added a laughing emoji to a retweet of Trump’s tweet.

Trump’s comment came amid a string of tweets Friday responding to Tlaib’s announcement that she would not travel to Israel to visit her grandmother despite having been granted permission to enter the country from Israeli officials.

"Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her 'grandmother,'" Trump wrote.

"As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel.

"Could this possibly have been a setup? Israel acted appropriately!"

Israeli officials initially denied entry to Tlaib and Omar, pointing to the pair’s itinerary which stated they planned to visit “Palestine” and not “Israel.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu considered the phrasing evidence that the two U.S. congresswomen intended to use their trip to promote a boycott of the Jewish state.

When Tlaib initially requested the visit to her grandmother, she pledged not to "promote any boycotts against Israel."  

She subsequently tweeted that visiting her grandmother under those conditions would go against her beliefs.

That prompted criticism from Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, who tweeted that Tlaib apparently hated Israel more than she loved her grandmother.
