Ocasio-Cortez and Corbyn Praise Each Other on Twitter After Phone Call

Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn spoke on the phone Sunday. Both leaders quickly posted friendly tweets following the conversation, praising the other and offering a glimpse as to its content.

“Great to speak to @AOC on the phone this evening and hear first hand how she’s challenging the status quo,” Corby tweeted first.

“Let’s build a movement across borders to take on the billionaires, polluters and migrant baiters, and support a happier, freer and cleaner planet,” Ocasio-Cortez then replied to Corbyn.

“It was an honor to share such a lovely and wide-reaching conversation with you, @jeremycorbyn!” she tweeted.

“Also honored to share a great hope in the peace, prosperity, + justice that everyday people can create when we uplift one another across class, race, + identity both at home & abroad.”

Ocasio-Cortez boasts one of the most influential Twitter accounts in U.S. politics with over 2.75 million followers. The rising Democratic star is currently working on her first piece of legislation with Democratic Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts – a bill aimed at kicking off her “Green New Deal.”

Corbyn has been plagued by accusation of anti-Semitic affiliations and not doing enough to crackdown on anti-Semitism with the Labour Party and its followers.

Yair Rosenberg, a journalist who chronicles anti-Semitic incidents, responded to Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter, writing, “85% of British Jews think Jeremy Corbyn is anti-Semitic. 87% of Jews refused to vote for his Labour party in the last election, and for good reason. @aoc might want to have her staff screen her calls more carefully.” Rosenberg included links to articles backing up the claims in his tweet.
