Radical Democrat Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now reportedly being tapped by the struggling Biden campaign to join his campaign in order to spearhead the radical Green New Deal initiative. As the Daily Wire reports:
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden confirmed on Tuesday night that democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was working with his campaign to promote her radical $93 trillion “Green New Deal,” which gives the government far more control over the economy and imposes a complete takeover of some private industries. The move comes after Ocasio-Cortez cheered American job losses last month that happened in the energy industry as a result of the coronavirus pandemic
“Ocasio-Cortez will co-chair a task force for Joe Biden’s campaign on climate change, a source with direct knowledge of the planning tells CNN, a move that adds progressive credentials to the former vice president’s effort to unify the party ahead of the general election,” CNN reported. “The group is one of several task forces being formed to bridge the divide between the polices of Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who ended his White House bid last month.”
An aide for Ocasio-Cortez said that she made the decision in conjunction with far-left climate change activists.
Biden later confirmed the news during an interview with News8 in Las Vegas, during which he also appeared to falsely suggest that the coronavirus pandemic was only impacting Democrats.
Joe Biden says he set up a joint committee with Bernie Sanders to discuss the “New Green Deal” and that Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC is on one of his policy panels.

Biden’s pivot to embracing AOC and her far-left agenda may indicate that his campaign is desperate to appeal to far left voters as his prospects against President Trump continue to look grim.
