President Donald Trump trolled socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and gave her a brand new hilarious nickname.
Reporter Yashar Ali tweeted over the weekend that he had obtained a copy of Politico's Tim Alberta's book "American Carnage," which features a passage detailing how Trump once spoke about Ocasio-Cortez.
The book says Trump saw Ocasio-Cortez on television once and compared her to former Argentine first lady Eva Perón, who is often referred to as "Evita."
"I called her Eva Perón. I said, 'That's Eva Perón. That's Evita," Trump said, giving her a new nickname.
1. NEW: I've obtained a copy of @TimAlberta's book "American Carnage" which comes out on July 16.— Yashar Ali ???? (@yashar) July 7, 2019
President Trump sat down with Tim for the book and in an interview he shares what his nickname for @AOC is:
Eva Perón or Evita
Evita was a Nazi sympathizer who helped her husband, Argentine President Juan Perón, destroy Argentina's economy by implementing socialism.
Adding even more hilarity to the situation, AOC took Trump's nickname as a compliment and tweeted out several quotes from Evita.
AOC tweeted out the following quote from Evita: "I know that, like every woman of the people, I have more strength than I appear to have.' - Evita Perón."
Ocasio-Cortez added: "'I had watched for many years and seen how a few rich families held much of Argentina's wealth and power in their hands. So the government brought in an eight hour working day, sickness pay and fair wages to give poor workers a fair go.' - Evita Perón."

- Evita Perón
As detailed by the Telegraph, Evita and her corrupt husband were Nazi sympathizers and played a huge role in driving Argentina's economy into the ground:
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Latin America’ aims to highlight a series of little known controversies about leading leftist figures in the history of the continent...
...Mr Peron helped many Nazis fleeing Europe after the Second World War to find a safe haven in Argentina, including Adolf Eichmann and Josef Mengele.
According to the new book: “It is still suspected that among her [Eva Peron’s] possessions, there were pieces of Nazi treasure, that came from rich Jewish families killed in concentration camps."
It certainly appears AOC has never heard of Evita, otherwise she probably wouldn't have endorsed the nickname from Trump.
Ocasio-Cortez embarrassing herself comes after she falsely claimed this week that President Donald Trump’s administration is operating “concentration camps” on the southern border.
During an Instagram live video session, the New York socialist also compared these “concentration camps” for migrants to the Holocaust.
Quite amazing to see a member of Congress make such abhorrent comments, which were also factually false and misleading.
And apparently she is excited about being compared to a Nazi sympathesizer.
