Ocasio-Cortez: Trump’s Border Wall a ‘Monument to Hate’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Tuesday blasted President Trump’s border wall as a “monument to hate” and a “monument to himself.”

“The President is holding gov operations hostage so that he can build a monument to himself on the southern border that the [majority] of Americans don’t want,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted hours before Trump’s Tuesday evening Oval Office address. When former media personality Toure Neblett asked in response if the wall is “a monument to Trump or a monument to hate,” she responded, “Same difference.”

Ocasio-Cortez has previously ripped Trump’s “racist border wall” and said she would support exactly “$0” for it. On Sunday’s 60 Minutes, she also said there is “no question” that Trump is a “racist.”
