It is not known whether Ms Ocasio-Cortez, who has been dubbed the Beyonce of politics, has accepted the organisers' invitation, reported by The Sunday Times.

Marie Harf, a Fox News commentator and former senior adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry during the Obama administration, conceded by saying that Ocasio-Cortez and the other freshman Democrats were a "hard set of cats to herd".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reiterates her backing for Joe Biden despite kissing-touching controversy and takes another swipe at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes", posted Ocasio-Cortez.

This comment did not make her favorite among the ranks of Hilary Clinton supporters.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., made a similar point in a Wednesday tweet in the wake of a "Fox & Friends" segment criticizing her comments about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Johnson had fun with the incident, giving people on the tee box permission to laugh because, as he said, "That's embarrassing". The 43-year old was not assessed a penalty and the shot did not count as a stroke as Johnson had no intention to hit the ball.

Ocasio-Cortez is not the only Democratic congresswoman to argue this week that the rhetoric used against her has placed her life in danger.

Stepping into the dustup, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings". Omar said that "some people did something" as she talked about the creation of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which was formed after the terrorist attacks.

"First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as "some people who did something".

"That does not particularly animate me right now", Ocasio-Cortez said, adding that she can "understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama's vice president". She then told Crenshaw, who lost an eye while fighting terrorism in Afghanistan, to go fight domestic terrorism.

The 29-year-old congresswoman from NY has reportedly been invited to talk at this year's event, which returns in June after a break in 2018.
