WOW! NY Mayor DeBlasio and Ocasio-Cortez CHEER Loss of 25,000 Amazon Jobs in Their City (VIDEO)
Amazon announced on Thursday they are cancelling plans to build a headquarters in New York City.
Amazon blamed local politicians for the decision to nix their plans in New York City.
“While polls show 70% of New Yorkers support our plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City.”
Socialist Rep. Ocasio Cortez cheered the loss of 120,000 high paying jobs in her community.
Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world. https://t.co/nyvm5vtH9k

The Socialists cheered the decision today.
