President Trump on Thursday predicted that far left Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez would mount a challenge against Sen. Chuck Schumer — and defeat him.
“Schumer’s going to get beaten by her. She’s going to run against Schumer, and he knows that and he’s going to get beaten by her unless you can talk her out of doing it. He has no chance,” Trump said on “Fox News Business.”
“Chuck Schumer will be, in my opinion. AOC will run against Chuck Schumer for the Senate. Yeah, I mean, I think. And I think she’ll win,” the president said.
The 30-year-old Democratic socialist is running for her congressional seat this November after defeating a challenger in the June primary.
Schumer, 69, the Senate minority leader, was elected to his fourth-term in 2016.
