Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) took to Twitter on Tuesday to tear into a Politico story she claims contains “false information.”

Donald Trump Jr.’s response? “Welcome to our world.”

President Trump’s eldest son has previously been an outspoken critic of Ocasio-Cortez’s democratic socialist views, as the Washington Post pointed out.

Ocasio-Cortez was railing against the report that, in her words, lacked “a SINGLE named or verifiable source,” adding, “My dad had a name for junk articles like this: ‘Birdcage lining.’”

“Welcome to our world …” Trump Jr. tweeted, referencing Ocasio-Cortez’s original Tuesday tweet. “You think that’s bad? Imagine what it’s like when they actually hate you.”

The Politico story that drew Ocasio-Cortez’s criticism claimed she was working to recruit a primary challenger to unseat Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) in 2020.
