Fmr. Campaign Aide to Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez on Schultz: White Male Billionaires Think They Should Be in Charge
SHAHID: “Regardless of the third party thing, I think it tells you way more about what white male billionaires think about themselves — that they should be in charge. And I think in this moment in time where you have all these working class people of all background who have been hurt by the Trump Administration, to put another white male billionaire who thinks the deficit is the biggest crisis in the country — that’s ridiculous given where the electorate is at. I think Ocasio-Cortez, one of the reasons she’s popular is because she’s a working class person from the Bronx. We need to see more leaders like that."
