WATCH: Trump Dismisses Ocasio-Cortez Racism Claims: ‘Who Cares?’
President Donald J. Trump could not care less about what a freshman Democratic Congresswoman from New York thinks about him.
Speaking with a gaggle of reporters outside the White House, Trump was informed by a member of the media that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called him a “racist,” and asked for his reaction.
“Who cares?” Trump said, summarily dismissing the reporter, the question, and the Congresswoman with two words.
In an interview with “60 Minutes'” Anderson Cooper two Sundays ago, Ocasio-Cortez said there was “no question” Trump is a racist.
Trump “certainly didn’t invent racism. But he’s certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things,” she told Cooper.
The President has better things to do than worry about name-calling from the petulant socialist “it girl,” and that much he made clear.
