WATCH: "I don’t want to hear the question ‘is this president racist?’ anymore." Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slates Donald Trump
She has not minced her words here.
Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has not held back while condemning US president Donald Trump for using the language of "white supremacy".
She said: "When we allude to people as an invasion, as an infestation, we are directly pulling from a language of white supremacy.
"So I don't want to hear the question 'is this president racist?' anymore? He is."
She then addressed those who she sees as "falling into the grips of white supremacy", and urged them to "come back" and fight that hate with love.

AOC posted the clip on Twitter with the caption: "Here’s what we have to say to all of America’s men and women falling in the grips of hatred and white supremacy: Come back. It’s not too late. You have neighbours and loved ones waiting, holding space for you. And we will love you back."
In the past, Trump has seemingly told AOC and three other female congresswomen to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came”.
Presidential candidate and Texas native Beto O'Rourke has also addressed Trump in the same way, while also criticising the media, saying: "22 people in my hometown are dead after an act of terror inspired by your racism. El Paso will not be quiet and neither will I."
