Rep. Alexandria Ocaso-Cortez (D.-N.Y.) sent out at tweet on Saturday accusing President Donald Trump of “bigotry” and stating her belief that this “bigotry” was “reflective” of what she described as the president’s “white supremacist base.”

That tweet by Ocasio-Cortez was following up on another she had sent out on Saturday in which she said Trump had “targeted antisemitism towards Chairman [Adam] Schiff.” This tweet included a link to an article published by theintercept.com which was headlined “Trump Escalates Anti-Semitic Rhetoric Amid Calls for Impeachment.’”

“Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism towards Chairman Shiff,” Ocasio-Cortez said in that initial tweet. “Then ask yourself why no one cares to denounce it—esp when his accusation of it towards others drove full news cycles earlier this yer.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s follow-up tweet to this one said: “It’s wrong. It’s shameful. And his bigotry is reflective of the white supremacist base he relies on for political gain.”
