Buttigieg: Green New Deal resolution 'the right beginning'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The recently released joint resolution set out a framework for what a "Green New Deal" would include in order to reframe the United States economy and shift the country away from fossil fuels, with an eye to combating climate change.

A handful of Democratic senators already running for president, including Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Kirsten Gillibrand and Corey Booker, have co-sponsored the legislation filed as a resolution.

While Cortez did not specify an exact valuation for her latest Green New Deal, she did add that the amount required would be "incomprehensibly large".

Hockett said Ocasio-Cortez does not want to ban airplanes or pay people "unwilling to work".

Trump poked fun at the Green New Deal at his campaign rally in El Paso, Texas on Monday night, making exaggerated claims that the policy platform would force people to give up air travel and owning cows, a source of methane emissions.

"No serious candidate has ever put forward something as dramatic as this and as damaging as this in recent years".

Directly after his speech in El Paso, Trump got a peppered answer by Ocasio-Cortez: "Ah Yes, a man who cannot even read the Briefings, which are written in full sentences, provides literary criticism of a Resolution of the house of representatives", back wedged to the 29-Year-old via Twitter.
