Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel echoed the sentiment President Donald Trump expressed a night earlier at a rally in El Paso, TX criticizing the so-called Green New Deal.
McDaniel noted that a number of drafts had to be re-released to the public, which suggested Green New Deal champion Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) wasn’t fully aware of her proposal.
“I think the president was being generous saying that it was a high school paper that would get bad marks,” McDaniel said. “My daughter is a sophomore in high school, she would have received a failing grade if she’d have put forward what Ocasio-Cortez did. Listen, you’ve heard her advisor all over TV last week saying people were making things up about their Green New Deal. They hadn’t read, they hadn’t edited the version that they put up that said ‘unwilling to work,’ getting rid of air travel in 10 years.”
“Now they’re saying there’s a version two, and a version three and a version four,” she continued. “They didn’t proofread this huge deal, this monstrosity that they’re putting forward, a total government takeover. The president is 100 percent correct when he says this will absolutely take away all the economic gains we’ve seen as a country if this is implemented. She has no idea. She is working in theory and she doesn’t understand the reality of what she’s proposing.”
