Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed Saturday that “every Democratic presidential candidate” has co-sponsored her Green New Deal.
Verdict: False – While nearly all congressional Democrats running for president in 2020 have co-sponsored the Green New Deal, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii has not. Outside of Congress, not all Democratic candidates have expressed support for the plan either.
The article goes on to state the following:
Ocasio-Cortez also claimed Saturday that the resolution had 84 co-sponsors in the House now, a statistic she may have gotten from the environmental advocacy group Sunrise Movement. According to congressional records, the Green New Deal currently has 68 House co-sponsors. Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not respond to a request for comment, and Sunrise Movement insisted its figure is correct without providing any additional details.
SPECIAL NOTICE FROM DML NEWS: A new project is underway that allows Americans to send a powerful message to Ocasio-Cortez that socialism is NOT the future for America. President Trump has fiercely stated that America will NEVER be a socialist nation. However, Ocasio-Cortez has claimed that the majority of America is behind her plan.
