Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted the US economy was booming under President Trump over the weekend, but bizarrely warned most Americans simply aren’t living “the truth.”
“US GDP is at an all-time high. As a nation, we are more prosperous than we ever have been,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media. “But that’s simply not the lived truth. Even now, I’m paid similar to a doctor or corporate lawyer – many who‘d think they are ‘rich,’ but it’s nowhere near what we actually mean in policy.”
