However, the resolution has faced opposition from fellow Democrats, such as California senator Dianne Feinstein.

Ms Feinstein was recently filmed arguing with a group of school children over the proposal, saying she could not support it because “there’s no way to pay for it”.

“I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing,” she said.

“You come in here and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that.”

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has said he intends to bring forward a vote on the Green New Deal, which would force Democrats to formally decide whether to back the proposal.

The resolution is not expected to pass the Senate, which is controlled by a Republican majority, and the planned vote has been criticised by Democratic leader Chuck Schumer as a “cynical ploy” to split the party.
