Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff for New York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D.), said that the Green New Deal was not about the climate, but rather about tearing down the economy and building a new one, according to a report from The Washington Post.

“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all,” Chakrabarti said, according to the Post. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Chakrabarti made the comments during a meeting with Sam Ricketts, the climate director for presidential candidate Jay Inslee.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted approvingly about Inslee’s climate proposal, calling it “the most serious + comprehensive one to address our crisis.” Climate change is the centerpiece of Inslee’s run for president.

Ocasio-Cortez has continued to keep her video pushing her “Green New Deal” pinned to the top of her Twitter page since April.
