AOC Begrudgingly Endorses Biden for President in 2024

Leftist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, known for her fringe stances, expressed support for President Biden in an interview, although it was begrudgingly.

While she acknowledged what she considers to be Biden’s achievements, she also highlighted areas where she felt he didn’t go far left enough.

During her appearance on the “Pod Save America” podcast late last week, Ocasio-Cortez commended his performance, considering the limitations he faces as president.

She specifically praised the American Rescue Plan and the Inflation Reduction Act, both of which put Americans deeper into debt.

“There are areas that I think are quite strong — when he came right out of the gate with the American Rescue Plan, and of course the Inflation Reduction Act was a massive step in terms of our climate agenda.”

“There are also areas that I think could have gone better. The president and I think the Democratic Party in general continues to struggle with immigration. We don’t want to own this issue,” she said.

“There are plenty of other issues as well,” she continued. “Even with what is happening with asylees — the ability to grant people basic work authorization so that they can work while they are going through their legal processing. There is [an] enormous amount of political resistance to that.”

Despite her previous support for “progressive” leftist Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary, Ocasio-Cortez indicated that she would support Biden in a potential 2024 Democratic primary.

“So, president’s only primary opponents are Marianne Williamson, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Haven’t been any rumors about anyone else even thinking of jumping in. Will you be supporting Joe Biden for re-election?” asked “Pod Save America” host Jon Favreau asked.

“I believe, given that field, yes,” she said in response.
