AOC Slams One of Trump’s Economic Advisers Who Said More Coronavirus Relief Is Unnecessary



U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-AOC Slams One of Trump's Economic Advisers Who Said More Coronavirus Relief Is Unnecessary-ss-featured

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aimed at one of President Trump's top economic advisers who suggested that the country does not need another coronavirus relief package.

Fox News reported that Stephen Moore on Wednesday said he did not expect that Republicans would meet Democrats' demands for further local and state government aid — “a key sticking point in stimulus negotiations — but maintained the nation's economy has already started a faster-than-expected recovery from the worst downturn in decades.”

“I don't see Republicans budging on the blue state bailout,” Moore said, as reported by The Washington Post. “The economy is doing fine — much better than anyone expected. We think the economy is strong because Trump didn't go along with a deal.”

On the other hand, Ocasio-Cortez argued the economy is “NOT doing fine.”

“30 million people in this country are at risk of eviction. Millions of people are unemployed or underemployed from cut-back hours,” she wrote on Twitter. “The economy is not the stock market. We are NOT doing fine. People need help in red states and blue, & our job is to help everyone. This is basic,” she then stated.

Newsweek explained that Moore made his remark as several states issue new restrictions or complete shutdowns on businesses and public venues as COVID-19 cases rise.
