During her interview with Skullduggery, a podcast for Yahoo News, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said the reelection of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shows how he is a Trump-like, authoritarian figure and reducing financial aid is “on the table.” “I think these are part of conversations that we’re having in our caucus, but I think what we’re really seeing is the ascent of authoritarianism across the world. I think Netanyahu is a Trump-like figure and I think that we, you know, there are so many ways to approach this issue,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Would you be in favor of reducing military or economic aid to Israel,” Daniel Klaidman, Editor in Chief for Yahoo News, asked. “I mean, I think it’s on the table, I certainly think it’s on the table,” Ocasio-Cortez replied. “I think it’s something that can be discussed.” The freshman Congresswoman added she hopes to be in supporting role for this issue because she thinks “we need to expand what those policy conversations are.” Watch above, via Yahoo News.
