Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) compared rising Democratic star, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), to President Trump at a recent town hall, calling their populist approach to politics “a real threat to our democracy.”

“When you listen to Trump and you listen to AOC, they are kind of sounding the same,” Rice said.

Some of the people at the town hall could be heard objecting to Rice’s comparison.

“What I’m talking about is, what they’re saying is resonating with the same people who are feeling disenfranchised, and that’s happening all over Europe,” Rice said. “I mean, it’s happening all over, and this is a real threat to our democracy.”

The video was obtained by a group called Primaries for Progress:
