Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Dares Donald Trump To A Grades Fight After ‘Poor Student’ Dig

Lee Moran

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took Donald Trump to school after the president attacked the progressive lawmaker as a “poor student.”

“I won’t say where she went to school. It doesn’t matter,” Trump told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Thursday. “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 and they’re all afraid of her because if you notice, the progressives are beating the regular Democrats.” 

Check out Trump’s comments here:

In the same interview, Trump appeared to admit his administration is blocking funding for the U.S. Postal Service in a bid to undermine mail-in voting ahead of the 2020 election. 

Ocasio-Cortez, who graduated from Boston University  with degrees in economics and international relations, responded to the president on Twitter: 

Trump has often bragged about his alleged academic prowess. 

But Michael Cohen, the president’s former personal attorney, claimed that Trump during the 2016 campaign threatened his alma maters with legal action if they released his records.

Mary Trump, the president’s niece, alleged in her tell-all book about her uncle that he cheated his way into college by paying a friend to take the SAT on his behalf.
