2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently shared the stage at a rally in Washington DC to promote the Green New Deal. The event was hosted by the Sunrise Movement, an organization of climate change activists. Sanders had already endorsed the Green New Deal prior to the event.

Sanders and AOC also unveiled legislation to cap credit card interest rates at 15 percent earlier this month. The two filmed a video together for social media promoting their new proposal.  Fellow 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren has also targeted credit card companies on the campaign trail, with many of Sanders’ and Warren’s political positions overlapping.

The freshman congresswoman was seen dining together with Warren earlier this year, but says she won’t endorse any candidate just yet. Ocasio-Cortez told CNN Washington correspondent Ryan Nobles that she is seeking a 2020 candidate with “a coherent world view and logic from which all these policy proposals are coming forward. I think Sen. Sanders has that. I also think Sen. Warren has that.”

Jason Meister, an advisory board member for President Trump’s 2020 campaign, discussed the relationship between Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez while appearing on Fox News earlier this week. Meister said, “It is a good move by Bernie Sanders to have AOC out there.” Although, he quickly followed the statement with an attack on Sanders’ age and multiple jabs at the congresswoman.

“I think every time she opens her mouth, another Trump voter gets born,” Meister continued. “She’s all over the map. She says crazy things.”
