Neon Nettle – Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said President Donald Trump wasted money on the “poorly attended” Independence Day parade. But with most things AOC says, the facts are usually a lot different.
“Trump spent millions on a poorly attended, one-day parade days after saying he couldn’t afford toothpaste & soap for caged children,” she tweeted. “Did he ask Congress for military parade [money]? No.”
“Trump held these kids hostage to secure billions for their abusers. Congress needs to see that,” she added. The basis of Ocasio-Cortez’s argument seems to be on the premise that the American people did not want Trump’s “Salute to America” event to happen.
