AOC spars with Donald Trump after he calls her ‘not a good student’

- Advertisement -

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez challenged President Donald Trump to release his college transcript after he called her ‘not even a smart person’ and a ‘poor student’ in a Thursday morning interview.  

‘Let’s make a deal, Mr. President: You release your college transcript, I’ll release mine, and we’ll see who was the better student,’ the New York Democrat tweeted. ‘Loser has to fund the Post Office.’ 

Trump went on a woman-bashing spree during his interview with Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, lashing out at Joe Biden‘s VP pick Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, ‘Morning Joe’ co-host Mika Brzezinski and progressive firebrand AOC.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said the academic loser would have to ‘fund the Post Office,’ which has become a political football in recent months  

The president claimed that Biden, the Democrats’ presumptive nominee, was going to increase taxes to pay for ‘AOC’s plan,’ which was perhaps a reference to the Green New Deal. 

Biden hasn’t come out in support of the ‘Green New Deal’ by name, but has committed to spending $2 trillion during his first term as president to combat climate change and boost green job growth. 

Trump then went into full attack mode on Ocasio-Cortez. 

‘AOC was a poor student – I mean, I won’t say where she went to school, it doesn’t matter,’ Trump said. ‘This is not even a smart person, other than she’s got a good line of stuff. I mean she goes out and she yaps.’

Ocasio-Cortez graduated from Boston University in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in international relations and economics. Her school named her a ‘Distinguished Alumni’ in 2019. A Boston University spokesperson has yet to respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment on more information about her academic record. 

Trump’s niece Mary alleged that he paid someone else to take his SATs to get into the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton business school, a claim that the president denies. Reporting from The Daily Pennsylvanian suggests that Trump did not graduate with honors, according to a program from the school’s 1968 commencement ceremony.  

The president then suggested that ‘these guys’ – meaning other Democrats – are ‘all afraid of her because if you notice all of these progressives are beating the regular Democrats.’ 

Trump pointed to Rep. Eliot Engel, who had chaired the House Foreign Affairs Committee, being ousted in the New York Democratic primary by Jamaal Bowman, a progressive endorsed by AOC.   

‘You know you look at Eliot Engel, poor Eliot Engel, he’s still going, “What happened? What happened? Has anybody seen what happened, what are the results?”‘ Trump said. ‘You lost, Eliot.’ 

Trump the predicted that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer would ‘get beaten by her’ if Ocasio-Cortez challenges him for his Senate seat in 2022.  

‘And he knows that and he’s going to get beaten by her unless he can talk her out of doing it, he has no chance,’ Trump predicted. ‘Of course she’s done so many bad things who knows whether or not she’ll get there,’ Trump added.  

AOC’s challenge to have Trump fund the Post Office comes as the agency has become a political football in recent weeks. 

Trump has said he opposes additional funding for the Post Office, which is struggling financially. But he’s also said that by not funding the Post Office it will be more difficult for states to convert their voting systems into mail-in ballots, which Democrats say is sabotage. 

The president has previously suggested he believes Republicans are hurt when elections are held by mail.
