Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Texas Senator Ted Cruz for tweeting about the tragic shooting in Uvalde, Texas, after being slated to speak at a National Rifle Association meeting in Houston this weekend.
Nineteen people – 18 of whom were children – were killed on Tuesday at Robb Elementary School. The tragedy is the deadliest shooting since Sandy Hook, which killed 27 in 2012.
Cruz tweeted that he and his wife were "fervently lifting up in prayer the children and families in the horrific shooting in Uvalde."
Ocasio-Cortez replied: "Aren't you slated to headline a speaking gig for the NRA in three days - in Houston, no less? You can do more than pray. Faith without works is dead."
