Trump Quotes AOC In Defending Himself Against Impeachment

By    |   Sunday, 16 June 2019 09:18 PM EDT

President Donald Trump on Sunday defended himself against impeachment by partially quoting freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"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!" Trump tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the powerful House Oversight Committee, earlier Sunday during an appearance on ABC's "This Week," said the pressure to impeach Trump grows every day and that frustration with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's resistance is "quite real."

"I think every day that passes the pressure to impeach grows. It's justifiable," she said. "I think the evidence continues to come in and I believe that with the president now saying that he's willing to break the law to win re-election, that — that goes — that transcends partisanship. It transcends party lines. This is now about the rule of law in the United States of America. ..."

She later said Democrats "have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States."
