    AOC has become the target for much Republican and Conservative ire over what many feel to be her radical policy proposals and unremitting attacks against President Trump and his supporters.

    Democrat Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is being condemned for calling upon her Twitter followers to make an archive of social media postings by “Trump sycophants” who may later try to distance themselves from the president as his electoral defeat appears all but certain.

    “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” Ms. Cortez, popularly known by her initials AOC, Tweeted on Friday November 6.

    “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future,” she added.

    However, a number of Netizens were quick to launch attacks on the idea.

    Ms. Cortez appears to have deleted a response to her initial Tweet by Michael Simon, a campaign staffer for former president Barack Obama, who pasted a link to a website called The Trump Accountability Project. The site appears aimed at trying to publicly shame those lawmakers and White House staffers who have stood with the president throughout his four years in office.

    “The world should never forget those who, when faced with a decision, chose to put their money, their time, and their reputations behind separating children from their families, encouraging racism and anti-Semitism, and negligently causing the unnecessary loss of life and economic devastation from our country’s failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” the site says.

    President Trump appears to be on course for a one-term tenure, as his Democratic Party contender, Joseph R. Biden, has slightly surpassed him in the decisive battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania.
