Donald Trump Jr. attacks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with ignorant dog-eating meme

It is not the first time that Ocasio-Cortez has drawn attention to the high cost of living and inequality in the USA capital. "Very few members of Congress actually pay their interns, We will be on of them".

On Monday, she said that when she went to a "dive spot in D.C. for some late night food," she talked with the staff.

Ocasio-Cortez's spokesman later said the point "was more about how we care so little about the "how do you pay for it" when we are talking about war and military spending".

The House interns fare much worse with only 8 per cent of Republican interns who are paid and an abysmal 3.6 per cent of Democrats interns are.

Even though Ocasio-Cortez said she would pay her interns a $15 per hour minimum wage, the majority of her Democrat colleagues who supported a $15 minimum wage did not their interns in 2017. A former congressional intern himself, Vera explained how the system of unpaid jobs in the Capitol has everything to do with keeping working-class students and people from low-income families out of the halls of power.

According Pay Our Interns, a nonprofit group, 51 percent of Senate Republicans pay their interns, as opposed to 31 percent of Senate Democrats.

While Ocasio-Cortez settles into life on Capitol Hill, Trump Jr.is reportedly awaiting indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller for lying to the FBI in the Russian Federation investigation.

On Monday, Pay Our Interns tweeted a screenshot of an ad for an unpaid press intern to work for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. "SEVERAL bartenders, managers, & servers *currently worked in Senate + House offices, *" she wrote.

Congress, until recently, has historically provided unpaid internships in all but a few roles on Capitol Hill.

Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged the new fund, noting that it will give $20,000 per member of Congress for their interns.
