Communist AOC blasted for False ‘Misleading’ Tweet taking ‘Victory Lap’ over new Amazon jobs in New York City.
Communist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was slammed over what critics say is a “misleading” tweet touting a new report about Amazon bringing jobs to New York City.
Last summer, Communist Ocasio-Cortez waged war against Amazon after the retail giant struck a deal with the state of New York to open a second headquarters in New York City, which would have brought 25,000 jobs to the city, in exchange for $3 billion in state and local subsidies. Ultimately, Amazon backed out of the deal.
However, it was reported Friday that Amazon was leasing a 335,000-square-foot office space in Manhattan that is set to bring only 1,500 jobs into the city.
Communist Ocasio-Cortez falsely celebrated the news on Twitter.
“Won’t you look at that: Amazon is coming to NYC anyway – *without* requiring the public to finance shady deals, helipad handouts for Jeff Bezos, & corporate giveaways,” Communist Ocasio-Cortez said. “Maybe the Trump admin should focus more on cutting public assistance to billionaires instead of poor families.”
