On Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez celebrates Amazon’s decision to cancel its plans to build a second headquarters in New York City.
Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world. https://t.co/nyvm5vtH9k

Ocasio-Cortez retweeted this when she first found out about Amazon’s decision to cancel.
Ocasio-Cortez in recent months joined the wagon of local politicians and advocates slamming the Amazon deal as corrupt and potentially harmful to local residents.
New York City offered $3 billion in state and city incentives to lure in Amazon but will fail to go through now.
