Ocasio-Cortez told the reporters that she’s trying to understand “the overall message” from Biden’s team “in this entire cabinet put together.”
“We have a person who has a more conservative history, that’s one thing, but what is the mission that they are being given in their individual agency, whether it’s Transportation, Defense, OMB, etc.?” she asked. “What is the mandate here?”
