Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has accused President Donald Trump of having “no interest” of helping the American public through the coronavirus crisis after losing reelection.

The New York representative participated in a town hall with constituents on Thursday and was asked the status of coronavirus stimulus talks within Congress during a time when the American public and businesses could use the additional relief funding.

"We thought [stimulus relief] was going to happen and at the very last minute the rug was pulled out for us," Ms Ocasio-Cortez said. “And now we are in a very dangerous moment where President Trump has no interest in helping the American people.”
