(NewsReady.com) – President Donald Trump paid one of his harshest critics a (probably unwelcome) compliment Monday morning. He backed Democrat calls for Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to try for a seat in the Senate.
Actually, that would be a big improvement – and she would win! https://t.co/EzmOjNtYJS

Trump’s remarks seem to have been prompted by an article in the Washington Post quoting a senior advisor to Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT). They said the fastest way to reform the “corrupt, do-nothing, status-quo-protecting culture of the national Democratic Party” would be for the radical congresswoman to beat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in a Senate primary.
This isn’t the first time the president has encouraged AOC to stand against Schumer. A few months ago Trump said she would “kick his a**” in a contest.
AOC isn’t ruling the idea out, either; in April she was asked point-blank if she’d consider it and replied “I don’t know.” At this point, it’s anyone’s guess whether she’ll run or not.
