Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be the first female US president Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be the first female US president Donald Trump's shocking victory in the 2016 presidential race caused liberals across the United States to question whether the country was indeed ready for a woman president. Since then, there has been much speculation about various female politicians and celebrities running for office, including Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Kamala Harris, Oprah, Michelle Obama, and others. There have even been rumours that Hillary Clinton might run again. I, however, don't see any of these women making it to the White House.

It may take her another six years to get there, but the youngest woman elected to the US Congress will win the presidency. Here is how and why.
