Documentary film director Michael Moore said American representative Alexandria Occasio-Cortez is the new Democratic party leader, urging politicians to take a position because "no longer a middle position".
– She's a leader. Everyone knows it. Everyone feels it, Moore said for the first New York congressman during an interview with MSNBC on Friday.
Moore said that the age requirement to run for president – 35 – must be constitutionally amended so that Occasio-Cortez can play for the White House. He said that Occasio-Cortez is the leader of a movement, quoting a study by Fox News, which showed that voters back her proposal to raise the tax rate to 70 percent for the richest Americans.

Moore also urged those with moderate views to "take a stand" in response to the question of whether someone like Occasio-Cortez with a very progressive policy can exclude moderates.

"If you are moderate, stop being moderate. Take a position, Moore said. – No middle position anymore. There is no way to pay for salary. "Well, I'm moderate, so I think they can pay half of that salary.
"You know that there is no time for moderation on the issue of choice, or you are against it, or you are against it, do you believe in equal rights for women, do you believe that we need to have equal rights?" There was no time for moderation, he continued.
