Like most other Conservatives, Donald Trump spends a lot of time talking about New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Since the freshman lawmaker was elected in the fall of 2018, she’s been a frequent topic on Right Wing Media.
Trump, who frequently talked about the Democrat’s squad, was again talking about AOC in a letter he sent on Thursday. The letter, addressed, to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, predicted that the high profile congresswoman would take Schumer’s seat in 2020.
Schumer has been critical of the governments ability to get much needed supplies to New York hospitals. A copy of Trump’s response to the senator was shared by Jonathan Lemire.

In the note, the President defended his Vice President, who is in charge of the White House Task Force. Trump wrote of Pence, “by almost all accounts, he has done a spectacular job.”
The commander in chief was also angry about his recent impeachment trial. Trump continued, “If you spent less time on your ridiculous impeachment hoax, which went haplessly on forever and ended up going nowhere (except increasing my poll numbers), and instead focused on helping the people of New York, then New York would not have been so completely unprepared for the ‘invisible enemy.”
And the final dagger delivered by the President concerned Schumer’s electoral future. “No wonder AOC and others are thinking about running against you in the primary,” penned Trump. “If they did, they would likely win.”
