A self-proclaimed socialist, Ocasio-Cortez says many Democrats have eased their stance and begun embracing her ideals.

Fox News Anchor Laura Ingraham shared a picture of the billboard on Twitter, thanking @JobCreatorsUSA. "PS fact that it's in Times Sq tells you this isn't for/by NYers", she said, commenting on the fact that Times Square is typically a tourist destination, rather than a space frequented by NY residents. "It's not to say we're going to force everybody to go vegan, or anything insane like that", she said.

The original JCN billboard had scathingly read, '25,000 lost NYC jobs, $4 billion in lost wages, $12 billion in lost economic activity for NY - thanks for nothing, AOC!' Ocasio-Cortez asked. "At what point is it immoral that we're building Jeff Bezos a helipad when we have the most amount of homeless people in New York City?" "The debate "must" be over my intelligence & understanding, instead of the merits of the deal", she wrote.

'It's fair to ask why we don't invest the capital for public use, + why we don't give working people a tax break'.

The New York representative appeared on Showtime's "Desus & Mero" on Thursday to explain the point made in her "Green New Deal".

Bernard Marcus, a billionaire donor to Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, founded the Job Creator's Network, and the group has received funding from the Mercer Family Foundation, a billionaire family's organization that donates to conservative causes, according to Business Insider.

"While I can't argue with New York's inhospitable business climate and anti-growth political leaders, I don't think that should limit Amazon's expansion plans".

"I think we have a beef with nearly everyone 'cause there's a lack of courage", Omar said, "and it seems like we're all radical because we deeply care for the people we represent and we want to throw down for them".
