Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the “Squad” of progressive Democrats, also encouraged her supporters to vote for Joe Biden in the video posted to Twitter.

“Voting for Joe Biden is not about whether you agree with him, it’s a vote to let our democracy live another day,” said Ocasio-Cortez, who had endorsed Bernie Sanders for president during his campaign.

She continued: “We need to act in solidarity and protection for the most vulnerable people in our society who have already experience the violent repercussions of this administration.”

Ocasio-Cortez added that “no one president is the answer.”

“Let this moment radicalize you. Let this moment really put everything into stark focus because this election has always been about the fight of and for our lives,” the congresswoman said.

She continued: “If anything, tonight is making that more clear to more people than ever before.”

In the caption accompanying the post, Ocasio-Cortez wrote that Democrats are “NOT gonna give up.”

“We don’t give up when people need us most. That’s not who we are,” @AOC wrote.

She continued: “Our democracy is at a faint heartbeat; it was broken even before Trump. But so long as we can save lives, I believe we have an obligation to do so as we build a new world.”

President Donald Trump said on Saturday that Republicans have an “obligation” to select and confirm a replacement for Bader-Ginsburg, affectionately known as RBG, “without delay.”

Bader-Ginsburg was considered the leader of the court’s liberal bloc, and her replacement with a judicially conservative justice could have far-reaching implications.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that Trump’s nominee would quickly receive a vote on the Senate floor.


Biden, however, called on Trump to holding off on naming the replacement – as Democrats draw parallels to the nomination of Merrick Garland by former president Barack Obama.

“Let me be clear: The voters should pick a President, and that President should select a successor to Justice Ginsburg,” Biden tweeted.

Garland was never confirmed to a seat vacated by Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy after Senate Republicans delayed his confirmation.

Brett Kavanaugh was ultimately tapped to fill the seat and was confirmed by a full Senate vote his controversial hearings revealing sexual assault allegations from Christine Blasey Ford.
