Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) will have a crucial role – maybe even a cabinet position – in a Bernie Sanders White House if Sanders is elected president next year.

The 78-year-old Democratic socialist revealed his intentions to ABC News.

Fox News' Nick Givas reports:
 

"Look, I have said this before, let me say it again -- and I don't want [Ocasio-Cortez] to hear this, because [her] head will explode," Sen. Sanders, I-VT., said during a joint interview alongside the freshman House member.

"I don't know of any person -- I've been in Congress for a few years, who in the course of less than one year -- she's been in office less than one year, who has had more of an impact on American politics as a freshman member of Congress than she has."

When asked about the possibility of Ocasio-Cortez joining his cabinet, Sander responded that she's deserving of an influential role if he wins in 2020.

"She is, again, at the end of one year she is a leader in the United States Congress and her ideas are resonating all over this country," he said. "If I am in the White House, she will play a very, very important role, no question."
