Back on June 2nd, AOC tweeted out pictures of her grandmother’s living conditions.
Of course, she blamed Trump for them:
We immediately got to work reaching out to community advocates and leaders and following the money.
What’s happening to Puerto Ricans is systemic. Much of it can be traced to La Junta, aka the Wall Street-connected fiscal control board that the US gave power to over the island.

AOC’s aunt disagrees.
The Daily Mail tracker her family in Puerto Rico down and now we have the full story.
The relative, who refused to give her name, added: ‘We are private people, we don’t talk about our family.’ Ironically for AOC, she also refused to blame former President Donald Trump for thousands of Hurricane Maria victims being unable to get money to repair shattered homes.
Her aunt said: ‘In this area people need a lot of help. Many people have needed it for the past four years and haven’t had anything.’
Yet she did not pin that on Trump, adding: ‘It’s a problem here in Puerto Rico with the administration and the distribution of help. It is not a problem with Washington. We had the assistance and it didn’t get to the people.’
Will the Mainstream Media cover this?
