In a Q&A live-streamed Monday on Instagram, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) claimed that President Trump is a “fascist” operating “concentration camps” on the U.S.-Mexico border.
“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” AOC said of migrant holding facilities. “The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it.”
“I don’t use those words lightly,” she added. “I don’t use those words to just throw bombs. I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist, and it’s very difficult to say that.”
