AOC Trolls The GOP For Its Failed Attempt At Showing Diversity At RNC

Published

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to Twitter on Tuesday after the RNC’s one night of “diversity” and trolled the GOP for using Kimberly Guilfoyle as their “proud Latina” speaker.

AOC noted that Guilfoyle didn’t seem to know that Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens.

“My mother Mercedes was a special education teacher from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. My father, also an immigrant, came to this nation in pursuit of the American dream,” Guilfoyle said during her speech.

“The woman the GOP picked as their ‘proud’ Latina to tout ‘immigrant experience’ didn’t seem to know that Puerto Rico is already part of the United States,” AOC stated on Twitter.

“It’s quite on message, bc it reflects their belief that Latinos aren’t real citizens, even when we are Native descendants,” AOC added.

It is worth noting that Puerto Rico became a U.S. territory after the 1898 Spanish-American War, and its residents have been U.S. citizens since 1917.
