Just a few months before the 2020 presidential election, and the hits keep coming, along with the personal jabs. The most recent buzz in the political circuit concerns a quote from President Donald Trump in an interview with Fox Business:

"AOC was a poor student. I mean, I won't say where she went to school, it doesn't matter. This is not even a smart person, other than she's got a good line of stuff," Trump said, "I mean, she goes out and she yaps."

The target of the statement, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, had an immediate response to the President. In a tweet, she stated:

"Let’s make a deal, Mr. President: You release your college transcript, I’ll release mine, and we’ll see who was the better student. Loser has to fund the Post Office."

This comes in a timely moment, as the United States Postal Service has been said to be suffering under the administration, and severely lacking in funding. Currently, the President opposes a stimulus for the Post Office, with questions regarding the logistical accuracy of mail-in voting.
