Ivanka Picks Apart Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal

The gloves are off and Ivanka just took Ocasio-Cortez’s entire socialist agenda head on!

In an interview with Fox News host Steve Hilton that will air in full Sunday, First Daughter and White House Adviser Ivanka Trump pushed back on the premises of the policies promoted by democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying she doesn’t believe Americans want a “guaranteed minimum” for their lives.

Ivanka’s comments were prompted by a question from Hilton, who said of the Green New Deal’s promise of a federal jobs guarantee: “You’ve got people who will see that offer from the Democrats, from the progressive Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Here’s the Green New Deal, here’s the guarantee of a job,’ and think, ‘Yeah, that’s what I want, it’s that simple.’ What do you say to those people?”

Trump responded by challenging the central premise of Ocasio-Cortez and Co.’s promises.

“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something,” she said. “I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last four years. People want to work for what they get. So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want.”

Instead, she said, Americans want agency and mobility. “They want the ability to be able to secure a job,” she said. “They want the ability to live in a country where’s there’s the potential for upward mobility.”

Asked about her father framing the 2020 election as a battle between his promotion of capitalism and Democrats’ increasing embrace of socialistic policies, Ivanka pointed to the results of her father’s pro-business policies versus other countries that are heavily socialist.

“I think fundamentally if you ask yourself the question, ‘Are we better today than we were yesterday or we were 2 years ago?’ the answer is, undoubtedly, yes,” she said. “So, as an American, families sitting down and thinking about their financial situation relative to a month ago or a year ago, America is doing very well and it stands in quite sharp contrast to the rest of the world. So, not only are we doing well, much of the world has slowed down in terms of the pace of their growth.”

Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described “democratic socialist,” has rapidly become one of the leading voices of the Democratic Party, and her radical Green New Deal has already gained a lot of support among her Democratic colleagues. The deal calls for the complete elimination of fossil fuels, guaranteed jobs, a federally mandated minimum wage, and Medicare-for-All.

On Monday, Bloomberg published the results of a study by a former Congressional Budget Office director that found that the Green New Deal would likely cost anywhere from $51 trillion to $93 trillion over 10 years.

“The so-called Green New Deal may tally between $51 trillion and $93 trillion over 10-years, concludes American Action Forum, which is run by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who directed the non-partisan CBO from from 2003 to 2005,” Bloomberg reported. “That includes between $8.3 trillion and $12.3 trillion to meet the plan’s call to eliminate carbon emissions from the power and transportation sectors and between $42.8 trillion and $80.6 trillion for its economic agenda including providing jobs and health care for all.”

  1. MR TRUMP NEEDS TO KEEP HIS B I G MOUTH SHUT_____WHAT ABOUT ALL THE CHILDREN HE HAS EXCUTED FROM THERE FAMILYS???????????

    1. Did you have all those outrageous feelings when the great Obama started that very law of separating children from their illegal parents (or often NOT their parents? Yes…..you genius…….slick Willie Clinton actually started it and the great Obama put it into action!!!

    2. Trump may have separated children from their parents but he has never excuted (killed) any children from their families……

  2. Democratic socialism being supported by Democrats…SURPRISE, SURPRISE! The last count I saw, 67 Democrats were co-sponsors of AOC’s Green New Deal. Just goes to show that more than 25% of the Democrats are absolute morons! It has also been brought out that George Soros is behind the Green New Deal. I wonder how much money he will makeoff of this garbage?

    1. this is so funny and so ridiculous when other billionaires try to outdo another billionaire. We are seeing how men and women who have most of the money in our country, offer most of the jobs available, payout salaries to millions of citizens, take great tax cuts, take all the risks, pay the bulk of the taxes that keep our country going strong, actually using their vast wealth to support their favourite political party and politicians. There must be a write-off or why would they just throw their money away ? No one can afford to run in this country for an office unless they have one of these billionaires lining their pockets with big bucks. AOC uses the very wealthy along with Bernie and all others who would never have this kind of money in their lifetimes. It is all going to become corrupt because now you owe these billionaires.

    2. Cortez is the perfect picture of stupidity. So when all us capitalists shut down our businesses and don’t send any taxes to the government who pays the bill. Oh, I forgot she will just print more.

    3. The new name for the Democrats needs to be Dumocrats….the party of death, deceit, disrespect, and destruction. The whole lot of them have smaller brains than a beebee in a boxcar….and they are making decisions that the majority of their constituents do not support…way to go Pelosi…what losers.

  3. Remember when we use to say: “That’s with an M for Million” than “That’s a B for Billion” and now “That’s a T for Trillion” look up how many million it takes to make a billion than how many billions to make a Trillion AND
    how many times can a Trillion one dollar bills go around the earth…….GOT IT? How many idiots does it take to screw up the most remarkable Nation God ever put on this earth? Just a few believe or not: Mao, Lenin , Stalin, Hitler, Castro, to name a few started it all and we have not learned a dame thing. It’s like not using birth control and wondering how you got pregnant? You got screwed!

  4. There is no such thing as democratIC anything as far as the democrats and/or liberals are concerned. Democratic has a very specific definition that does not co-inside with the democrat play book. It pertains to democracy a form of government completely foreign to the democrat party and all libtards.

  5. In order to actually build the improvements she would like to require regarding more effieicent homes and buildings, the people that want jobs guaranteed better learn how to install windows. As an inspector of window installations, this is a disaster waiting to happen. I catch the current professionals not installing them correctly all the time. I have even seen a building where the windows were put on inside out. (they drained into the building feeding the mold and not out of the building) If less trained people do this work, the results will be a disaster, along with the rest of her doctrine.

  6. the new Democrat party strategy is to promise things that are totally undeliverable….it’s a wish list for the simple minded…..Let’s ban illegal drugs,ban racism, ban murder, ban Cancer….who can argue with that?…how do you achieve it?…crickets………let’s everyone have free and universal health care….Nice?…sure?…how do you pay for it?…crickets…..we don’t need a Military, because we can all just agree to get along…how pleasant…realistic?…NO…….but the Democrats who have nothing else to say other than Impeach Trump have decided that the only way to attract votes is to offer things that are unachievable, and then dare anybody to say that those aren’t good objectives and if you are opposed to all these wonderful things you must be an awful and evil person. Trump has a very difficult job ahead of him, undoing 8 years worth of Obama’s corruption, apologies, failed foreign policies, and destructive economic policies. I trust him far more than anything any Democrat has said, and their pie in the sky nonsense..

  7. I have not seen all the talking heads yet, but i did hear one moron that was laughing and saying she would not know what it was to work.. Wrong Take the time to see her achievements. It has nothing to do with Daddy’s money.It takes hard work and an earnest desire to try for the right thing at all times. NO WHINING.. No murdering your babies. The courage to stand up. She is a Real WOMAN.
    .

  8. AOC, the biggest mouth of all, no brains to analyze whatever it comes from that stinking siphon
    and what is more worrisome is that the destruction that it creates, New York already loss the
    chance to have 25,000 additional jobs and work and money to those stupid people that vote for LOUD MOUTH
    AOC. Alarm On Corruption.
    God Bless Beautiful America “from sea to shinning sea.”

  9. A ‘Guaranteed Minimum’ for the masses’, always comes with a ‘Guaranteed Maximum’… for masses.. an inconvenient truth that is never expanded on. We only hear the ‘Minimum’ arguments and if it ‘Maximum’ is ever mentioned it is always very lofty goals, seldom ever achieved by any.. in any form of governance.. but.. BUT… people do get close to it if they try. And then a second generation from these people that try have a very good chance of attaining the leftist dreaded ‘Maximum’. So the left make ‘Maximum’ the enemy, the evil.. the reason and heart of accepting ‘Minimum’.. as ‘Maximum is portrayed as impossible, as evil….
    We live in a time where ‘Maximum’ is more possible than ever for human beings.. we live in a time where ‘Minimum’ is preached more than ever to our youth.
    The left wishes power to become holders of ‘Maximum’ which insures ‘Minimum’ must be developed to the leftists can get ALL THE “MAXIMUM” they can. Due to our ability to communicate humans can see the truths, but only if they look for the truths and not accept the fictions being promoted by leftists wanting ‘Maximum for me,,, but not for thee.. for thee, thou gets Minimum’.
