While Ocasio-Cortez, 29, is too young to run for president, she has taken the political world by storm after dispatching a top House Democrat in her 2018 primary by supporting initiatives to push the Democratic Party further to the left. 

A self-avowed democratic socialist, Ocasio-Cortez has drawn the ire of conservatives, including Fox News hosts, over her policies, ranging from boosting taxes on the wealthy to her "Green New Deal" to combat climate change.

Some Republicans have sought to force the entire party to answer for her platforms, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellTrump blasts McCain, bemoans not getting 'thank you' for funeral GOP senator: Trump's criticism of McCain 'deplorable' McConnell calls McCain a 'rare patriot' and 'American hero' after Trump criticism MORE (R-Ky.) declaring the Senate would vote on the Green New Deal and President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump mocks wind power: 'When the wind doesn't blow, just turn off the television' Pentagon investigator probing whether acting chief boosted former employer Boeing Trump blasts McCain, bemoans not getting 'thank you' for funeral MORE vowing at his State of the Union address that “America will never be a socialist country.”
