Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) had little to say Monday when asked to condemn the domestic terror attack on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility by an Antifa activist.
The video was captured by The Rebel News Online and posted to its Twitter account.
"Will you condemn Antifa for the attack in Washington?" the reporter asked the freshman congresswoman as she walked with her aides.
"We'll be making a statement," Ocasio-Cortez responded.

"It's easy to condemn a terror attack," he fired back.
The video continues with the reporter asking numerous times for Ocasio-Cortez to condemn the violence, but she is silent and ignores the question.
"Will you be condemning Antifa?" he asked again. "They firebombed an American facility. Will you condemn them?"
The reporter noted that Ocasio-Cortez had referred to the ICE detention facilities as "concentration camps," which many in her own party found to be a reprehensible comparison.
Tacoma police shot and killed an Antifa activist who was throwing incendiary devices on Saturday at the ICE detention center in Tacoma, Washington. Willem Van Spronsen, 69, was identified as the assailant, and police found that he had been carrying a rifle in addition to the incendiary devices.
