Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Friday suggested that, now that Donald Trump’s time in the White House appears to be over, some of the president’s staunchest supporters may now try to pivot away from him.
As the winner of 2020 election remained undeclared, but with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on the cusp of victory, Ocasio-Cortez asked on Twitter if anyone was “archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?”
“I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future,” added the New York lawmaker, who won reelection this week.
In a second tweet, Ocasio-Cortez laughed at the idea of the “party of personal responsibility” — the GOP’s ostensible platform, at least before the Trump era ― “being upset at the idea of being responsible for their behavior over last four years.”
With the election still to be called, Trump has split Republicans over the past few days, as he attacked the democratic process and spread baseless conspiracy theories about mass voter fraud.
