Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may have hinted at her own political ambitions when she declared that there was a future president in attendance at the Women’s March in New York City while speaking at the event over the weekend.

“Last year, we took the power to the polls, and this year, we’re taking power to the policy because we have taken back the House of Representatives,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And that’s just step one. This year, we are going to organize. This year, we’re going to fight for voting rights.”

“In 2018, we took the House of Representatives and through 2020, we’re going to take the White House and Senate, too,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “That’s what we’re going to do because we need to advance and fight for America where all people are welcomed and no people are left behind.”

“And I know that while this year has been historic, there’s a lot more congresswomen left here in this audience right now. There’s a lot more city councilwomen,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And I know that there’s a future president out here, too.”

Unfortunately for the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez, she will have to wait until the 2024 presidential election to run, as the Constitution prevents anyone who is not 35 years-old from entering office.
