Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) told TMZ Thursday that she would not shake President Trump’s hand when he delivers his State of the Union.

The TMZ cameraman asked Ocasio-Cortez what she thought about Trump wanting to deliver a State of the Union address while the government is still shut down.

“I think that if he reopens the government and gives people their paychecks, then we’ll be able to pay people to help run the State of the Union,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

The TMZ cameraman followed up by asking Ocasio-Cortez if she would shake Trump’s hand at the State of the Union.

“You know, probably not my hand, but I’ll be there, and I’ll be present to see and listen to what’s going on,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
