Sen. Ted Cruz responded to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s call for his resignation by calling her a liar and saying he has no plans to resign from his Senate seat.
“@AOC You are a liar,” the Texas Republican tweeted after Ocasio-Cortez blamed him for the chaos on Capitol Hill earlier this week that left multiple dead.
“Leading a debate in the Senate on ensuring election integrity is doing our jobs, and it’s in no way responsible for the despicable terrorists who attacked the Capitol yesterday,” Cruz said.
Cruz added that he intends to remain in the Senate to fight policies pushed by Ocasio-Cortez and her “socialist buddies.”
“I will fight that every step & stand with the People,” the senator said.
2/2 …try to massively raise taxes, when you try to pass the green new deal & destroy millions of jobs, when you push for amnesty, when you try to pack the Supreme Court
