Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaigned with New York Lt. Governor candidate Jumaane Williams in Queens on Saturday where she recruited young kids to "fight Trump" and help mobilize voters.

What happened?

Video posted to Ocasio-Cortez's Twitter account shows her talking to a group of children in Queens, trying to sway them against President Donald Trump. She almost refers to herself as a "congresswoman," but tells the children she's campaigning to be their congresswoman.

"So I'm going to go to D.C., we're gonna be fightin' Trump," she says.

The children erupted in praise and applause. One kid responded by shadowboxing the president, while another remarked: "I don’t like Trump."

"So we're out here, but we need your help. We need your help to fight Trump, so this is what I need you all to do," Ocasio-Cortez says.

"When you go home and you talk to your mom, your dad, your aunt, your grandma, your sister, your brother, anybody who's over the age of 18 who could vote, first you need to ask your parents to vote because if they don't vote we can't kick out Trump. OK?" she continued.

"I need your promise. So if you're gonna agree say, 'Yes I'm gonna do it,'" she then tells the kids. They all agreed and raised their hands.

Ocasio-Cortez concluded her huddle by instructing the children to tell their parents to vote for her and Williams.
