The alleged aunt of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threw a wrench in the New York Democrat's narrative about Puerto Rico, telling a reporter recently that former President Donald Trump is, in fact, not to blame for troubles on the island.

Fearless with Jason Whitlock What is the background? After recently visiting her grandmother in Puerto Rico, Ocasio-Cortez posted a photo of her abuela's home still in disarray after Hurricane Maria devastated the island in 2017. She blamed Trump for allegedly blocking relief funds from reaching the island.

"Just over a week ago, my abuela fell ill. I went to Puerto Rico to see her- my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID. This is her home. Hurricane María relief hasn't arrived. Trump blocked relief $ for PR," Ocasio-Cortez said.

"In the aftermath of María, the Trump admin oversaw two key items: handing millions in public $ to unqualified donor pals (ex Whitefish). The other was to impose extremely difficult eligibility rules for Puerto Ricans, which allowed mass rejections of recovery fund applications," she alleged.

What did AOC's tía say?

A reporter from the Daily Mail recently tracked down the house belonging to Ocasio-Cortez's grandmother, and when the reporter approached the house, a person outside the house identified themselves as Ocasio-Cortez's aunt.

That same person rebuffed Ocasio-Cortez's assertion that Trump is at fault for conditions in Puerto Rico.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has appointed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a newly created committee targeting economic disparity, in an apparent olive branch following tensions between the caucus leader and the 'Squad' of progressive Democrats.

Pelosi unveiled the new Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth at a press conference in DC on Wednesday, saying it will study ways to reduce economic disparity.

The speaker said Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, will focus on 'addressing generational disparities and increasing worker power in the economy.'

Ocasio-Cortez will join seven other Democrats on the panel, including Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, the Progressive Caucus chair, whose focus will be 'delivering workers better wages and a brighter future.'

Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut will chair the committee, with Pelosi saying in a Dear Colleagues letter that he brings 'extensive professional experience from the private sector and in affordable housing.'

At the press conference, Ocasio-Cortez spoke out on the subject of inflation, saying that the Federal Reserve should revisit its assumptions about the relationship between inflation and unemployment.

The Fed manages inflation by raising interest rates, and tries to reduce unemployment by lowering rates.

AOC Claims NYC Subway that Flooded After Tropical Storm Elsa Hit is the Result of Americans Taking Orders From Fossil Fuel Execs & Backing Lawmakers Who Make You Swim to Wor
Daily Mail UK ^ | June 9, 2021 | Ross Ibbetson

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has claimed a viral video showing a flooded NY subway station is the result of Americans taking orders from fossil fuel execs. She claimed that her Green New Deal was being sidelined by corporate elites who would make you swim to work. Thunder storms brought flash flooding to the city this week with footage showing New Yorkers wading through filthy waist deep water at a Bronx subway station. AOC, who is from the Bronx, responded to the videos on Twitter, mocking her critics by writing in their voice: 'The Green New Deal, which is a blueprint to create millions of good jobs rebuilding infrastructure to stem climate change & protect vulnerable communities, is unrealistic. Instead we will do the adult thing, which is take orders from fossil fuel execs and make you swim to work,' she continued.
