Democratic socialist and Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) compared her election victory to historic events in American history like the moon landing and the civil rights movement during a press conference about a “Green New Deal.”

“This is not just about a ‘Green New Deal.’ This about a ‘New Deal’ for the United States of America because in every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, at every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss, and we did not know if we would be cable of saving ourselves, we have,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“We’ve dug deep, and we’ve done what we thought was impossible. We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We dig deep, and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year. That’s what so many of us did.”
