Republicans are attempting to sway moderate Democrats to vote for Donald Trump by claiming that former Vice President Joe Biden is being advised by socialists on policies.

McEnany is referring to the fact that Ocasio-Cortez is one of a number of people who sits on a panel advising the Biden campaign on climate change policy.
Ocasio-Cortez decided to answer McEnany’s comments with a few comments of her own. Take a look:
