Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted back at President Donald Trump Sunday after he agreed with comments she made that there is a “very real risk” he will be re-elected in 2020 if Democrats don’t impeach.
If Trump is not impeached, Ocasio-Cortez believes that Democrats will lose the presidency to Trump, according to an interview she had Sunday with Jon Karl on ABC News’ “This Week.” Trump quoted her on Twitter after the interview, saying that he agrees that the Democrats have a risk of losing to him.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “I think we have a very real risk of losing the Presidency to Donald Trump.” I agree, and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used!

“Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do,” according to Ocasio-Cortez’s response to Trump on Twitter. She ended her tweet with hand-waving emoji.
Mr. President, you’re from Queens.(Article Continues Below Advertisement)
You may fool the rest of the country, but I’ll call your bluff any day of the week.
Opening an impeachment inquiry is exactly what we must do when the President obstructs justice, advises witnesses to ignore legal subpoenas, & more.
Bye 👋🏽 https://t.co/4O9PNbYFki

Ocasio-Cortez also said that Democrats have to choose a progressive 2020 nominee. If not, the risk of losing to Trump is real, according to her interview Sunday.
