United States representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks with attendees during GOTV Rally with AOC and Biaggi in the Bronx, New York, November 1, 2018.

Using the Adobe Premiere video editing app, Rodgers layers the original footage of Ocasio-Cortez dancing to "Lisztomania" by French band Phoenix onto Ocasio-Cortez (known affectionately as "AOC") dancing to dozens of different pop songs. "I can't believe they thought that was going to be some scandal", wrote DeRay McKesson, a USA civil rights activist who was a leader of the Black Lives Matter wave of protests against police violence that swept USA cities including Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore in 2014 and 2015. That led to a weekend of Twitter exchanges with Representative Steve Scalise, the No. 2 House Republican.

In a statement to CBS, the White House said that her "sheer ignorance on the matter can't cover the fact that President Trump supported and passed historic criminal justice reform" and "has repeatedly condemned racism and bigotry in all forms".

"Or why did @washingtonpost give my confusing tweet on military accounting offsets the same "Pinocchios" as Trump's flat denial of how many Americans died in Puerto Rico?" she said in her series of tweets.

"Of course not. What we have in mind and what my and my policies most closely resemble (are) what we see in the United Kingdom, in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden".

'We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, healthcare and education.

Workers were told this week that liquidation sales are expected to start at the affected locations in two weeks, CNBC reports . Sears' chairman, Eddie Lampert , has been trying to buy the company out of bankruptcy through his hedge fund, ESL Investments.

Ocasio-Cortez expressed little concern that people seem to think she doesn't know "how the game is played", telling Cooper that she wants people to underestimate her as that's how she won her primary, she says. And so for me, what's unrealistic is what we're living in right now, ' she said.

When asked flatly if she believes Trump is racist, Ocasio-Cortez said, "Yeah, yeah".

"People are going to have to pay their fair share of taxes", she told CBS television's "60 Minutes", in excerpts released ahead of its Sunday broadcast.

"Once you get to the tippy-tops, on your $US10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 per cent or 70 per cent", Ocasio-Cortez said. At the same time, she doubled-down on her taunts of the Mueller probe, whose cloud continues to hang over the president's inner circle. Sweden has a 70 percent marginal tax rate and it kicks in, not at $10 million like AOC proposes, but at around $98,000.

"Because I think he's a symptom of a problem", she said.

Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the post on Friday with the caption, "You hate me coz you ain't me, fellas". Your tax rate, you know, let's say, from zero to $75,000 may be ten percent or 15 percent, et cetera. Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the radical decision to embark on establishing programmes like Social Security. Regardless of what tax bracket you're in at the high end, most single filers have a 10% tax rate on the first $9,525 they earn (after adjustments and deductions, ) then a 12% tax rate on income between $9,526 and $38,700, all the way up to a 37% tax rate for income of $500,001 or more.
