Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) tweeted on Wednesday that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) agreed to debate her over the Green New Deal.
Democrats regularly frame the Green New Deal as a legislative attempt to combat “climate change” and “global warming.”
Greene attached a photo of her and Ocasio-Cortez on the House floor to a tweet mentioning her New York colleague, “I’m glad I ran into you today … to plan our debate about the Green New Deal. After I finish reading all 14 pages, like we agreed, I’ll schedule time for our debate. #MTGvsAOC“
Greene also wrote, “[Ocasio-Cortez’s] Green New Deal will destroy the US’s oil and gas industry just after we became energy independent from President Trump’s #AmericaFirst policies. Our ability to export oil and gas gives the US great negotiating power in the world. China and Russia love the GND.”
I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC
