Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday reportedly “refused to condemn” Black Lives Matter activists who had demanded late last week that white people in Seattle give up their homes.
Ocasio-Cortez made her remarks while speaking to reporters during a visit to an NYCHA housing complex in Queens.
