Ocasio-Cortez mocks Trump over bad weather ahead of Bronx rally: ‘God is good’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) mocked former President Trump over bad weather ahead of his Thursday rally in the Bronx.

“God is Good 🙏🏽,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a Thursday post on the social platform X.

The New York Democrat replied to a post showcasing that the Crotona Park section of the Bronx, where the rally is slated to take place, had rain around 10 a.m. local time Thursday.

The House progressive went after the former president earlier this week for doing a campaign rally in the South Bronx. She said he was holding it in the Democratic stronghold due to a “legal version of an ankle bracelet.”

“Donald Trump is broke. He needs money. He’s hosting a rally to try to con people and try to fleece them out of every dollar that they have to fund his own legal fees,” she said.

Trump announced last week he was holding the rally Thursday evening in Crotona Park, a green space in one of the area’s most diverse neighborhoods. The former president is looking to court minority voters just days before the jury in Manhattan is set to provide a verdict in the hush money case where he faces 34 felony counts.

Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-N.Y.), a Democrat representing New York’s 15th Congressional District, where the rally will take place, said Trump’s presence in the Bronx should be in the borough’s criminal court.

“Donald Trump is a criminal suspect faced with 91 felony counts, desperately searching for a self-pardon,” Torres said in a Wednesday post on X. “The only place in the Bronx where Trump has any business being is Bronx Criminal Court.”
