Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not impressed with the idea former Vice President Joe Biden is thinking about a run for president in 2020.
” That does not especially animate me today,” Ocasio-Cortez stated in reaction to a question about Biden throughout an interview with Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff.
The famous Democrat-Socialist said she had “a great deal of problems” with a Biden run.
” I can comprehend why individuals would be excited by that, this concept that we can return to the great old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president,” she said. “There’s an emotional component to that, but I do not want to go back. I want to go forward.”
Prior to winning her congressional seat, Ocasio-Cortez arranged for Sen. Bernie Sanders but has actually held back backing him for president.
In March, Ocasio-Cortez said that she was in discussions with Sanders and other 2020 prospects.
” I’ve been speaking with him and a number of other of the 2020 prospects and I believe they have actually comprehended and respected the fact that I think that I want to wait up until we get a little bit closer.”
In the discussion with Isikoff, she said that ultimately she would support any Democrat chosen by the celebration.
” I will support whoever the Democratic candidate is,” she validated.
