In the meantime, you can get out of my timeline and stop chasing influences. Thank you, "Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a subsequent tweet. "I'm happy to be working on this with other GOPs. This is not the first time that the New York congresswoman has criticized Cruz. She called for her resignation just after the Texas senator issued a statement on Twitter in which he called the riots "a despicable act of terrorism and a shocking attack on our democratic system." "

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez addresses the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee on November 19, 2020. In response, Ocasio-Cortez wrote," Sen.Cruz, you must take responsibility for how your greedy, selfish actions contributed, and like you financed this uprising. Both you and Senator Hawley must resign. If you don't, the Senate should apply for your expulsion. "
