Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a message for Donald Trump

Ocasio-Cortez Stirring people’s hopes and a nightmare for the Establishment

"I think it's the future of the party in the Bronx, where she is", Duckworth said.

However, her "girl from the Bronx" moniker doesn't paint a complete picture.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, houses in Yorktown Heights sell for as much as $900,000, while it also boasts of better public schools - touted as the possible reason that Ocasio-Cortez's family moved to the neighborhood. "Democratic socialism, and really what that boils down to me, is the basic belief that I believe that in a moral and wealthy America and a moral and modern America, no person should be too poor to live in this country".

Such is the case for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who famously unseated a longtime congressman incumbent when she won the Democratic primary in New York's 14th Congressional District.

Cardillo's tweet wasn't the only right-leaning attempt to discredit Ocasio-Cortez in the wake of her upset win against Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) last week. "A far cry from the Bronx hood upbringing she's selling", Cardillo wrote on Sunday morning.

Suffolk girl dies in Gorleston beach 'explosion'
Brandon Lewis, Conservative MP for Great Yarmouth, tweeted: 'Absolutely tragic, thoughts are with family & friends, just so sad'. Summer Grant was playing on the castle when it "cartwheeled" 300 metres down a hill with her still inside.

He shared the image because he felt the house showed a far different from the struggle-filled childhood in the Bronx Ocasio-Cortez claims to have had, but believe it or not the tweet didn't wind up working in his favor. And it's worth noting that Cardillo was wrong about her school (she went to Boston University, not Brown).

At the end of the night, when it came time to split the $560 in tips she had gotten at the bar, Ocasio-Cortez gave the waitress only $50. My mom scrubbed toilets so I could live here & I grew up seeing how the zip code one is born in determines much of their opportunity.

Ocasio-Cortez returned to the Bronx after graduating college and spent her time there community organizing and working in eduction. She's a self-described democratic socialist, a pro-abolish ICE candidate, and is part of the ascendant progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

The candidate's press office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
