Trump was holding a rally in El Paso where he said Ocasio-Cortez's signature plan to combat climate change "sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark".

Ocasio-Cortez confirmed the legality of a political campaign funded entirely by PACs; the use of hush money to keep skeletons in the closet; impacting legislation in which one has PAC-motivated interests; and simultaneously holding in an industry while taking legislative action (e.g., deregulation) that benefits that industry. Then Ocasio-Cortez pointed to an article from the "Washington Post" (paid content), which States that the reading of news briefings "are not Trumps the preferred "learning style" and the President instead of oral reports.
