President Donald Trump was asked on Monday for his response to socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) labeling him a “racist.”
His response set the internet on fire — and conservatives are urging Republicans to follow the president’s lead.
“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez called you a racist,” a reporter shouted at Trump.
“Who did?” Trump asked.
"Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez,” the reporter answered.
“Who cares,” Trump shot back dismissively.

That’s how it’s done. And the internet couldn't get enough of it.
While Democrats went on fancy vacations amid the government shutdown, President Trump was still working to get Congress to approve funds for additional border security. So far, no apparent progress has been made.
“I’ve been here all weekend,” Trump said. “A lot of the Democrats were in Puerto Rico celebrating something. Maybe they’re celebrating the shutdown.”
He added: “We have a very big crisis, a humanitarian crisis on the border. Everybody knows it; they know it.”
President Trump also claimed that many government workers affected by the government shutdown agree with him that the border needs to be secured. He said the crisis has gotten so bad that it's not something he is willing to put up with any longer.
"I’ve been waiting all weekend," Trump tweeted. "Democrats must get to work now. Border must be secured!"
