Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Friday that "powerful people are trying to bribe the President into war” with Iran.

Ocasio-Cortez quoted a tweet by Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold which linked to an article he co-wrote entitled, “A wealthy Iraqi sheikh who urges a hard-line U.S. approach to Iran spent 26 nights at Trump’s D.C. hotel.”  The report details that the Iraqi sheik stayed at a very expensive suite in Trump's D.C. hotel after urging the Trump administration to take a "hard-line" against Iran.
