Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday morning on ABC's "This Week" that Democrats have a "very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump." In the same interview, she renewed a push to begin impeachment hearings, saying the pressure to impeach grows every day. 

Trump selectively quoted Ocasio-Cortez's interview, tweeting he "agrees" and his potential win is "the only reason they play the impeach card."
