Yet there were almost as many headlines about her online spat with Trump after the President responded to to her assertion that she would not visit the White House if asked by instructing her to "never disrespect the flag".
What took place since the 34-year-old's comments saw Trump criticise the winger in a back-and-forth exchange, before extending an open invitation to the team, win or lose.

"So yes to AOC, yes to Nancy Pelosi, yes to the bipartisan Congress, yes to Chuck Schumer - yes to anyone else that wants to invite us and have a real substantive conversation, and that believes in the same things that we believe in".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
