Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has some bad news for the American Left: progressives will not be able to organise under a second Donald Trump term, because he’ll be throwing them all in jail.

The New York congresswoman has told Mehdi Hasan that, while she understands why some would refuse to vote for Joe Biden due to his support for Israel, she personally doesn’t want to allow Trump to impose fascism on the US. “I have a vested interest in protecting democracy, not just here domestically, but globally […] we will not be able to organise for any movement towards anything if we are facing the jailing of dissidents.”

“Yes. Fascism,” Hasan said, nodding along solemnly. Keep fighting the good fight.
