Donald Trump Jr. recently shredded “economics genius” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her insane suggestion that the state of New York could somehow invest the $3 billion tax break that Amazon would have gotten for building in Long Island City.

Trump Jr. tweeted, “Will someone please explain to me how it is possible for NYC to SPEND a $3 Billion tax break on anything? This is insanity.”

Trump Jr. was responding to the idiotic claim from Ocasio-Cortez that New York had given away $3 billion by letting Amazon come to New York, and thus could use that money to hire teachers and fix the subway. She said:

You know, I think it’s really important that we understand that we need to invest in our economy, but we need to invest in our people, and to give away $3 billion to a company that has a history of worker exploitation that’s paying below what the cost of New York City is not acceptable for us. We need to have good jobs, and they need to come to the table as in — you know, any company that wants to come to New York needs to come to the table as an equal partner, and you look at how Google came to New York; it was not nearly as controversial as this, and I think it’s because of, they were willing to work with local communities.

What’s great is that our economy, our local economy, is already growing. So I firmly believe that if we want to take that $3 billion dollars that we were willing to give to Amazon and invest it in our local community, we can do that. We can make those jobs. We can make 25,000 jobs. But we don’t have to give away and allow our subway system to crumble so that Amazon essentially owns a part of New York City. We can create 25,000 jobs with Mom-and-Pops; we can create 25,ooo jobs with companies that are willing to come to the table, but we should not be giving away our infrastructure, our subway system, our schools, our teachers’ salaries, our firefighters’ budgets, to a company that has not shown good faith to New Yorkers. And we can ask for more because we deserve more.

What Ocasio-Cortez apparently doesn’t or won’t understand is that there is no $3 billion out there that New York could spend; it was simply $3 billion in unpaid taxes from which Amazon would have benefited by staying in New York.

On Friday, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough also ripped Ocasio-Cortez, stating:

What’s shocking to me is once again she shows how little she understands not just economics but even unemployment. She’s the one who said the reason unemployment is so low is because a lot of people have two jobs. She needs to learn basic things about what it is to be a representative … Just because she has a progressive agenda, which some people like, does not mean she has the city’s best interest. She showed me she only cares about herself and not about her colleagues … and not about the people she represents because those people would be getting jobs themselves.

  1. “O” Cortez is a child who has had it all pampered and stupid. She is a working Parrot of the crap she was spoon fed from the 60’s radicals who bent her brain while in College. Just like the children from Kindergarten to College graduation by the social justice crap schools preach.

  2. We need to punish these unamerican jihadists and Marxism idiots from our gov at all levels. They are here to destroy our country! America wake up!!!! And destroy our middle-class!!!

  3. I cannot imagine how AOC got voted in. She was selling a bunch of garbage to young people who want to get everything free! I wonder how AOC is going to react to the taxes she’s going to have to pay on her $174,000 salary as a Representative. Maybe she should be able to give her taxes away to her constituents and none to support the government!

  4. The new green deal makes as much sense as Ocasio-Cortez and her NAZI Commie Demoncrats liberal minions and RINOs do! That’s why it fails every time it rears its ugly head! Stop America from becoming another commie shit hole like all the lib run states!

  5. ACO is an idiot of the millenial kind. 2 + 2 = What?
    Economics simply could NOT have been her major at Boston U! She can’t even understand simple arithmetic, let alone stastistical numerations. This twit is a product of not only her generation, but also her mixed dufus nationality. Dumb as a rock and no marbles in that empty skull! Get her out of Congress!

  6. The 3 billion would be a tax break over a ten year period…but during that time…New York would benefit from over 20 billion in revenues by having Amazon there with jobs..new business..and the taxes from all the jobs created….Cortez thinks that New York has 3 billion in cash to play with ..and this moron who is now in Congress has not a clue as to how economics works in the business world….and is why president trump who has been a business genius for 40 YEARS HAS BROUGHT OUR ECONOMY TO RECORD HIGHS…while everything that Cortez proposes would turn this country into a third world nightmare….

  8. Vote her and the other Democrats out of office – all of them. Ambrosia Occluded-Cortex has a mouth that is far bigger than her putative brain.

  9. The really scary part is that this idiot who just screwed NY out of all those jobs will get re-elected by people even dumber than her.

  10. Someone said that this clown should be brain washed. This would require a couple of high volume soap suds enemas since she is so full of crap.

  11. Its a shame that the man she ran against knew that she did not stand a chance so he did very little campaigning and now we suffer the consequences. If this bimbo’s IQ were one point lower you would have to water her to sustain life. Someone said that she should be brain washed but that would require a couple of high volume soap suds enemas.

  12. All I can say is that the one world order that George Soros is using the Dems to get can only be stopped by Trump. It takes one to know one
    Trump knows how to fight Soros if we just give him his head and let him run. We gave him the job now let’s let him do it. We have to fight right along next to him. Trump can stop Soros! This isn’t a physical fight it’s a spritial fight. Just remember we just voted for him. God chose him.

  13. I agree, if she knew one thing about creating jobs and tax cuts, she would understand how the us really works. Go to cuba, or some other communist country and sell yourbullshit, not hereyound lady. I suggest you gtow up and try to learn something from people that know.

  14. This lady is insane.She said she is progressive,but don’t understand what progress is. She single handedly destroy 25000 jobs in her poor neighborhood and taking a victory lap. Well,she represents one of the poorest neighborhood and want to keep them that way.She only care about herself not where she represents. She said that world will end in 12years right? She’s a Looney tunes.

  15. AOC simply proves the problem with “one person one vote”. If you allow people who only drain the efforts of others (i.e. demanding welfare without caring who pays for it, while producing nothing of value themselves) to perpetuate their agenda of “everything for nothing” by allowing them to vote, pretty soon you have the means of electing someone to Congress who will promise everything out of stupidity or self-enrichment without regard for who pays for their promises. In AOC’s case, I can’t tell if it is stupidity or self-enrichment. I think it is a lot of both. No wonder AOC and her ilk want every uninformed derelict, wino, illegal immigrant, felon, unemployed, pervert, mentally challenged, welfare recipient and the like to vote. A little common sense tells you that virtually all these votes go to very liberal socialistic candidates who for the most part shout ridiculous non-sense just to win the votes.

  16. Please search for my Petition to get AOC, Omar and Tashib out of Congress. These women are going to start a Civil War. They are reckless. The Petition is on Change.org. Under Aoc, Omar and Tashib.
