She fought to keep Amazon from building its headquarters in New York.
And she won, costing her state $12 billion in revenue and upwards of 25,000 jobs.
Now, Amazon is headed back to the Empire State – with or without AOC’s consent.
From Daily Wire:
In a stinging reproach to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohorts who scuttled the deal by which Amazon would have built a headquarters in Queens, Ocasio-Cortez’s district, Amazon is reputedly going to place its headquarters in Manhattan instead.Trending:
According to The New York Post, Amazon is communicating with Brookfield, the owners of the One Manhattan West building and its impending partner, Two Manhattan West, starting with securing “at least 100,000 square feet or much more.” Although Two Manhattan West won’t be equipped for tenants until 2022, 67-story One Manhattan West will be ready by autumn 2020 and boasts a 250,000-square-foot space inside. The massive space is not available in perpetuity, but it can fit Amazon’s needs until Two Manhattan is ready, according to the Post’s sources.
The Post noted, “Brookfield, which owns the two Manhattan West towers (and another at 5 Manhattan West, where Amazon is already a tenant), denied through a spokesman that it was leasing to the Seattle company. But multiple sources pointed to the company’s strict confidentiality agreements as a potential reason.”
Sources told the Post that Amazon is also thinking of renting space in the U.S. Post Office building across from the Brookfield buildings.

If you didn’t catch eight-year-old Ava Martinez mocking Ocasio-Cortez, you missed out.
Ava starts, “Hi, AOC here again, and, like, I’m going to talk about, like, the three branches of the government, which are the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria.“
She then pretends her parents leave the room and says, “Please help me. My parents are making me do these videos. They’re crazy right-wingers. They watch Fox News and listen to Rush Limbaugh and some Russian guy named Drumpf. I don’t even know who this ABC lady is. I just want to have a normal childhood like Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan. But they think doing these AOC videos will help me get into Harvard so I won’t have to brag my way in and pretend I’m 1/16th Cherokee. Please, send someone. Send ICE, or the FBI — but not James Comey.“
Thanks to everyone who had kind things to say about little AOC (Ava in Orange County). This next video is to the people who looked for any way to be negative, about a sweet, little girl being praised for entertaining & performing, for no other reason than who the subject was. pic.twitter.com/3p11Pmoi94
