Warren describes the 2008 financial crisis, which occurred the same year Ocasio-Cortez lost her father to lung cancer, as a formative moment for the first-term Democratic representative.

“Her commitment to putting power in the hands of the people is forged in fire,” Warren writes. “Coming from a family in crisis and graduating from school with a mountain of debt, she fought back against a rigged system and emerged as a fearless leader in a movement committed to demonstrating what an economy, a planet and a government that works for everyone should look like.”

Ocasio-Cortez later thanked Warren for her remarks, saying she "couldn’t be more honored and humbled."

This week, Ocasio-Cortez praised the detailed policies Warren has proposed as part of her presidential bid, calling it "truly remarkable and transformational."

While Ocasio-Cortez and her signature Green New Deal environmental legislation are frequent targets of conservatives, Trump has rarely mentioned her directly.
