Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not only calling out Trump for his recent racist tweet but is reminding him – and the world – of his sexual assault allegations for good measure.

“Hey Mr. President, remember when you bragged about sexually assaulting women, talking about feeling their breasts and genitals, because ‘when you’re a star they let you do it?’ And then you imposed DOE policies to make it harder for sexual assault survivors to report an assault?” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet Tuesday, referring to the infamous 2005 Access Hollywood video that surfaced during the 2016 campaign in which Trump is heard saying he was able to grab women “by the p****” because he was famous. Trump later apologized referring to it as “locker room banter.”

Last weekend, Trump tweeted that congresswomen AOC,  Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib should all “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”
