“A man whose entire life was built on a rich blend of daddy’s money and financial fraud accuses me, daughter of a house cleaner who won multiple elections to Congress by the age of 30, of not having talent,” Ocasio-Cortez, a progressive superstar on Capitol Hill and a top target for Republicans, tweeted Tuesday evening.

The New York lawmaker has emerged as a top boogeyman for the GOP since she was first elected to the House in 2018, with many Republicans pointing to the self-avowed democratic socialist as a sign the Democratic Party is lurching to the left. 

Trump and his allies have sought to paint Biden as beholden to the “far left” of the Democratic Party, pointing to his appointment of Ocasio-Cortez to the environmental task force. However, the former vice president has refrained from adopting several progressive priorities, including “Medicare for All,” the Green New Deal and defunding the police.
