Ocasio-Cortez says 'vote your values' after finding Trump supporter sign outside office

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-CortezAlexandria Ocasio-CortezRepublicans plot comeback in New Jersey Joseph Kennedy mulling primary challenge to Markey in Massachusetts The latest victims of the far-left's environmental zealotry: Long Islanders MORE (D-N.Y.) tweeted a photo on Friday showing a "Trump supporters for Ocasio-Cortez" sign that was hung outside her office, calling it an example of why everyone should "vote your values."

Ocasio-Cortez described the exchange with a man and his teenage son in a thread of several tweets Friday evening. 

The freshman lawmaker said she was leaving her office when she saw the man hanging the sign, and asked him how he supports both President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump pushes back on recent polling data, says internal numbers are 'strongest we've had so far' Illinois state lawmaker apologizes for photos depicting mock assassination of Trump Scaramucci assembling team of former Cabinet members to speak out against Trump MORE and herself "at the same time," when she has been known to clash on major policy issues with Trump and other conservatives.

"This is what he said: 'I’ve been saying for years that climate change is our most important crisis. You’re one of the only ones who‘s been willing to be decisive on it,'" Ocasio-Cortez wrote retelling the story. 

The progressive firebrand went on to say finding out Trump voters also supported her policies was an example of why no one should "lecture you about what is 'possible' or 'electable.' "

"Don’t ever let a politician imply that working people are 'less-than' or 'uneducated' - aka that they are the ones in the way of solving the climate crisis," she continued. "The same folks who said Trump was impossible in 2016 are the same ones lecturing on what’s 'electable' in 2020."

She ended her thread, "Don't buy it. Vote your values."

Her thread comes as many begin debating which Democratic candidate among the crowded primary field has the best potential to beat Trump in the general election.
