"I wasn't referring to Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez specifically, I was referring to members of congress getting into Twitter battles". Ed Markey, it was revealed on Thursday.

The nine-day gap between The Daily Wire's original report on Ocasio-Cortez and Stuckey's parody video is key.

She's been working with Massachusetts Sen. "I don't like her because she's a liberal, anti-Israel socialist who supports a 70% tax rate".

As arguably the most famous face of the Democratic Party right now, she has already been a strong fundraiser - and you should expect those dollars to continue to pour in heading into 2020.

Snow to hit London tonight as Southeastern warns of busier peak trains
The south and south west will see rain, sleet and snow throughout the day and some disruption from the snow is expected. Commuters in many parts of the country were warned to leave work early on Thursday to ensure they got home.

Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of MA has been working with freshman Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY on "Green New Deal" legislation that will be unveiled soon, an aide to Markey confirmed to CNN on Thursday.

There's no final date to present the bill but reports indicate it could happen as soon as next week. Were it not for the fact that her party is now in control of the House of Representatives, she would be just one voice in a minority crowd.

However, it is possible the plan Markey and Ocasio-Cortez propose could be a scaled-back version.

When Hoover asked her to expound on those comments, the Ocasio-Cortez stammered and ended up admitting she is "not an expert" on the conflict. "If we don't show up for people, why should you feel entitled to their vote?" She followed up by recommending studying great orators of history, like Martin Luther King, Bobby Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Dolores Huerta and Angela Davis, to improve public speaking.

For U.S.-China trade talks, hopes are high, expectations low
China agreed to increase imports of US agriculture, energy, industrial products and services, it said, without providing details. The US President also addressed the ongoing trade talks between Washington and Beijing .

Numerous supporters are freshman lawmakers such as Ocasio-Cortez who helped the party capture control of the House. California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris on Tuesday became the latest 2020 candidate to throw her weight behind the plan.

In a twitter thread in late December she blasted members of her own party on the matter.

But what is the Green New Deal, exactly? It had 3 simple elements: 1. Proposals include phasing out the use of fossil fuels and transitioning to 100% renewable energy within a decade, a living-wage job guarantee, as well as smaller items like new tax credits for electric vehicles and energy efficiency upgrades for homes and buildings. We can not afford to make the same mistake with climate change.

In their letter to the tech companies, Ocasio-Cortez and Pingree compared denial of climate change to the way tobacco companies once sought to deny that cigarettes cause cancer.

The win was despite the significant decline in sales nearly on previous year's level with nearly 19,97 billion dollars. The issue, he said, was in global markets thanks to foreign exchange rates and disappearing carrier subsidies.
