“I think, overall, we can likely push Vice President Biden in a more progressive direction across policy issues,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) says in a recent video. “I think foreign policy is an enormous area where we can improve; immigration is another one. Criminal justice is another area where we can pursue a lot of progressive direction.”
AOC made the comments in a recent interview with Just The News.
In the interview she states that she was a supporter of Bernie Sanders in the primary because of his progressive stances, “but, you know, the primaries are over, and right now what is most important is to make sure that we ensure a Democratic victory in November and that we continue to push Vice President Biden on issues from marijuana to climate change to foreign policy," she said.
