On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during an interview on Fox Business, calling her a “poor student.” Now, she’s firing back by demanding that Trump release his own college transcript.
“AOC was a poor student,” Trump said, according to Fox News. “This is not even a smart person, other than she’s got a good line of stuff. I mean, she goes out and she yaps.”
Not stopping there, Trump added that Democrats are “all afraid of her.”

Ocasio-Cortez wasted no time in clapping back at the president on her own Twitter page.
“Let’s make a deal, Mr. President,” she wrote. “You release your college transcript, I’ll release mine, and we’ll see who was the better student. Loser has to fund the Post Office.”

The Post Office dig referred to the Democrats’ latest demand to provide billions to the cash-poor agency to help it deal with a surge in mail-in voting. Trump has told Democrats that they need to be willing to negotiate on coronavirus relief if they want money for the USPS.
This comes one week after Trump gave a speech in which he referred to Ocasio-Cortez as a “real beauty” who “knows nothing” about the economy.
While appearing at a rally in Ohio, Trump said Democrats want to “inflict a socialist takeover of the U.S. economy known as the horrendous Green New Deal.”
The president added that the Green New Deal “was conceived by a young woman AOC — AOC plus three, I say — AOC, that’s a real beauty, isn’t it?”
“She knows as much about the environment — do we have any young children here? — as that young child over there. I think he knows more. And she certainly knows nothing about the economy,” he said.
