Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on Congress members who may be sympathetic towards the rioter carrying Confederate flag: "The Confederacy were a band of enemies and traitors to the U.S. ... if they find more sympathy with them, then perhaps they shouldn't be serving in the U.S. Congress."

As I spend time in Maine, I’m noticing many confederate flags on properties and cars. To be clear, the confederacy was alive for 5 years, and their pursuit was to keep slavery legal in the US—and they lost. It seems many people with confederate flags don’t seem to know this.

Trump is running for president of the Confederacy. @JoeBiden  is running for President of the United States. They will both win.
