  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Ocasio-Cortez's public Facebook pages include her official congressional account and a political account created two years ago that has spent more than $370,000 on ads over the past year, according to Facebook.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Sunday said she supports impeaching President Donald Trump.

The congresswoman said that reducing aid is "certainly on the table, and I think it's something that can be discussed, and I think that-and I also acknowledge my role in in this as well in that I hope to play a facilitating role in this conversation and a supportive role in this conversation..." In a new interview with the the Yahoo News podcast "Skullduggery" this week, the freshman congresswoman said that she's no longer using Facebook other than her official account to promote advertisements and fundraising endeavors, and she is likewise attempting to scale back her overall social media usage.

Last month during a House Financial Services Committee meeting, Rep. Barr invited Rep. Ocasio-Cortez to tour a coal mine with him.

In the early days of her primary campaign, Ocasio-Cortez had linked herself to the show.

"I think these are part of conversations we are having in our caucus, but I think what we are really seeing is an ascent of authoritarianism across the world", she said.

"They'll find somebody to challenge her in that district... somebody more moderate I think will take her lights out. And I said don't talk like the Founding Fathers on Twitter". I think it has effects on everybody: "Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism", she added.

The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) on Monday strongly criticized Ocasio-Cortez for her comments.

Ocasio-Cortez said while she had started to "impose little rules" about her social media use - like curtailing her consumption of content on weekends - she still writes her own Twitter and Instagram posts, both platforms where her followers exceed 3 million people.
