Donald Trump attacked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for having a “great line of bulls***" but knowing nothing about the environment, as crowds at a rally in Macon, Georgia cheered.

The president took a swing at the New York congresswoman as he mocked her Green New Deal proposals to deal with the climate crisis.

Mr Trump made the dismissive comments to a campaign rally crowd on Friday, his third public event of the day following a speech to seniors and another rally in Florida.

“She doesn’t know anything about the environment, she doesn’t know, she has got a great line of bulls*** thats about it,” said Mr Trump to huge cheers.

“It’s true, she knows nothing about the environment. AOC plus three, these are not great academics."

The president often uses the phrase “AOC plus three” to refer to the New York congresswoman and three progressive Democratic colleagues, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who are collectively known as The Squad.

Mr Trump told the crowd that the proposal would cost $100 trillion and would force new buildings to have “tiny windows.”

“If you don’t mind I would like to keep my windows, I want to have a nice view of Georgia,” the president laughed.

Mr Trump told the audience it would take the US 100 years to raise the money needed.

Windows are not mentioned in the Green New Deal (GND), the 14-page bill aimed at simultaneously tackling the climate crisis and providing jobs.

It was introduced in 2019 by Ms Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey.
