2. No, they came up with it themselves - specifically AOC.

AYANNA PRESSLEY: Yes, because we were the four being interviewed as firsts. And at the end of that interview, we took the photo and I'm not sure who said it, but just --

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: It was me.

AYANNA PRESSLEY: But just within the context of social media culture, said, "Oh let's just do a #SquadGoals or something."

RASHIDA TLAIB: It was "Squad Goals."

AYANNA PRESSLEY: It was "Squad Goals." And then it morphed into this thing. But I said, I've been saying in the days leading up to this moment, that the reality is that anyone, to your point about it's not just about dismantling, but what we're intentional about building and fostering. Anyone who is committed to the work of building a more equitable and just world is a part of the squad.
