President Donald Trump appeared to fire a warning shot at the multiple members of Congress who now openly describe themselves as "Democratic socialists" during his State of the Union address.

"Every single policy proposal that we have adopted and presented to the American public has been overwhelmingly popular, even some with the majority of Republican voters", said the NY congresswoman. "Think about them", Archila said during the confrontation.

Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is bringing along a guest - one of the two women who confronted Arizona Sen.

'I told the story of my sexual assault.

The Intercept reported she would be the guest of the Democratic socialist who has attracted a huge Twitter following.

On February 1, 2019, The Daily Wire quoted the vapor-minded Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new and rising star of the radical left Democrat party, with a number of things that relate to the state of our nation at the moment.

"This is not tolerable", she added.

Mr Trump also went on to say the government was launching a "Government-wide initiative focused on economic empowerment for women in developing countries".

Mike Huckabee, who once said he wanted to replace the Constitution with the Bible, whined, writing in a tweet, "Ocasio-Cortez compares her election to moon landing. Huh?"

After the encounter, Flake ultimately voted to confirm Kavanaugh, but before that, asked for a further FBI investigation into the allegations.

Speaking to Reuters on the sidelines of a Capitol Hill event on Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez said the appointment of progressives like her to the panel "sends a very powerful message" to the financial industry.

While Flake told the Senate Judiciary Committee he would vote to advance the nomination of Kavanaugh, who stood accused of sexually assaulting Dr. Christine Blasey Ford when she was 15, he called for a week's delay to allow an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into the allegations. "What you are doing is allowing someone who actually violated a woman to sit in the Supreme Court".

There will always be some in the opposition that abstain from clapping during the mention of more right-wing policies.

Another said that Ocasio-Cortez' act of defiance makes him feel like he is being represented, possibly referring to what his reaction would be if should he be invited in the SOTU.
