Alexandria Ocasio-CortezAlexandria Ocasio-CortezDemocrats' CNN town halls exposed an extreme agenda Pelosi: Dems may get to impeachment, but 'we're not there yet' Maxine Waters is the Wall Street sheriff the people deserve MORE (D-N.Y.) in which she pushed back against the privatization of the Department of Veterans Affairs' health care system.
Ocasio-Cortez said at a town hall event last week privatizing the system would benefit pharmaceutical companies and health insurers, not veterans, telling constituents, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
The president initially misspelled Ocasio-Cortez's last name before reposting the tweet with the correct spelling.
"Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is correct, the VA is not broken, it is doing great," Trump tweeted. "But that is only because of the Trump Administration. We got Veterans Choice & Accountability passed."
Trump added a quote from Dan Caldwell, the executive director of Concerned Veterans for America, who appeared on Fox News Wednesday morning to discuss Ocasio-Cortez's comments.
