"If the worst and most authoritarian, borderline – or probably, actually –fascistic president in modern history considers me public enemy No 1, I think that's a good thing," she said.
"I'm doing a great job," the New York City Democrat added after reiterating the same message in a tweet.
"If we‘ve been identified as public enemy #1 to the worst president in modern history and an entire party of his sycophants, then we must be doing something right," she wrote.

But Ocasio-Cortez also told Fonda that the former VP is more “vulnerable" to liberal activism, while Trump is “accountable to no one."
She wrote: “The reason young people aren’t really passionate or supportive of a lot of elected officials is because a lot of elected officials do nothing substantively to address the real material cares that a young electorate is passionate about.

When Fonda brought up her Green New Deal, Ocasio-Cortez said she couldn't believe how it galvanized younger voters.
On Sunday, the 31-year-old politician reiterated that Dems should focus on electing Biden before policy-pushing.
Speaking to CNN's State of the Union, she said the Democratic Party "need to make sure that we win this White House.
"Frankly, I think it would be privilege and would be a luxury for us to talk about what we would lobby Democratic and how we would push the next Democratic administration," Ocasio-Cortez said.
"AOC is a name given to me by community & the people," she said. "Y’all can call me AOC.
"Government colleagues referring to each other in a public or professional context (aka who don’t know me like that) should refer to their peers as 'Congresswoman,' 'Representative,' etc. Basic respect 101."Ocasio-Cortez said Republicans weren't allowed to call her AOC She urged Dems to focus on electing Biden before policy-pushingCredit: AP:Associated Press Trump has slammed the Democratic congresswoman Credit: AP:Associated Press AOC hit back on Twitter and in an interview with Jane FondaCredit: The Mega Agency Fonda asked her about the Green New Deal Credit: YouTube/ Greenpeace USA
