And next to Trump’s was, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

Captioning the meme, Trump Jr. wrote, “It’s funny cuz it’s true!!!”

“Please, keep it coming, Jr. — it’s definitely a ‘very, very large brain’ idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month. Have fun!”

She later reminded people on Twitter that she individually can’t subpoena someone.

“For the GOP crying that this is a ‘threat’ — I don’t have power to subpoena anybody.”

“Congress as a body, GOP included, has the power,” she tweeted.

“No indiv. member can issue a subpoena unless they are a Chair (which, as a freshman, I can assure you I will not be). Also must be under purview.”

Ocasio-Cortez has often criticized President Donald Trump and his administration.

As recently as Monday, she condemned the White House’s immigration policies, tweeting that the administration “has been criminal from the start.”
