Far-left Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ramping-up attacks against the constitution.
The Democrat hopeful took to Twitter over the weekend to slam the electoral college as a “shadow of slavery’s power.”
It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic. https://t.co/00HZN3MI6F

Ocasio-Cortez made her remarks in response to the Senate confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
She echoed the calls of many Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, to abolish the United States Electoral College as undermining what they call “America’s democracy.”
However, President Trump rebuked the Democrat attacks against America’s constitutional foundations.
“If Democrats are willing to cause such destruction in the pursuit of power, just imagine the devastation they would cause if they ever obtained the power they so desperately want and crave,” said the president. “On November sixth, you will have the chance to stop the radical Democrats, and that’s what they’ve become.”
Ocasio-Cortez has previously been endorsed by former President Barack Obama and is part of the Democrat campaign to flip the House as well as attempt to impeach President Trump.
