AOC’s Aunt Blames Puerto Rico Politicians, Not Trump — “We Had The Assistance”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) aunt is pushing back on AOC’s blaming of Trump.

According to a report from The Daily Mail, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s aunt does not blame the Trump Administration for her grandmother’s living conditions.

The Daily Mail reported:

The relative, who refused to give her name, added: ‘We are private people, we don’t talk about our family.’ Ironically for AOC, she also refused to blame former President Donald Trump for thousands of Hurricane Maria victims being unable to get money to repair shattered homes.

According to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s aunt, Puerto Rico had enough assistance, but it didn’t get to the people.

She said it was “a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration.”

Her aunt said: ‘In this area people need a lot of help. Many people have needed it for the past four years and haven’t had anything.’

Yet she did not pin that on Trump, adding: ‘It’s a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of help. It is not a problem with Washington. We had the assistance and it didn’t get to the people.’

This is at odds with what Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed.

On June 2nd, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out a photo of the poor living conditions her Grandmother was living in.

She blamed the Trump Administration for it saying that they “blocked” relief money for Puerto Rico.

Daily Wire writer Matt Walsh started a Go Fund Me for AOC’s grandmother but the money was refused by someone in the family.

The Go Fund Me raised over $100,000 dollars:
