Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said the fact that Joe Biden doesn't support her radical Green New Deal climate legislation "isn't news."

After Biden said during Tuesday night's presidential debate that he backs his own climate change plan instead of the Green New Deal, former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway tweeted at Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, the co-sponsors of the bill.

Conway wrote, "'The Green New Deal Is Not My Plan' - @joebiden

"'I don't support the Green New Deal'

"cc: @AOC cc: @EdMarkey"

Ocasio-Cortez responded by writing, "This isn't news, Kellyanne.

"Our differences are exactly why I joined Biden's Climate Unity Task Force - so we could set aside our differences & figure out an aggressive climate plan to address the planetary crisis at our feet.

"Trump doesn't even believe climate change is real."

On Tuesday, Biden and President Donald Trump tousled over climate change and how they plan to help the environment. Trump brought up the Green New Deal, which Biden said is not his plan.

Ocasio-Cortez and Markey unveiled the environmental legislation, which is predicted to cost trillions of dollars, in February 2019.
