Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claps back at U of T student

Yesterday, University of Toronto computer engineering student Harry Khachatrian recieved a clap back response from popular new U.S. Representative from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).

After AOC was quoted as saying, “The vast majority of Americans know that income inequality is one of the biggest issues of our time” in an interview with The Hill. Mr. Khachatrian tweeted AOC by asking, “What, precisely, is the correct level of income inequality for you, @AOC? Is there a distribution you are shooting for? Should everyone be equal?”

AOC responded stating the following: “Somewhere between ‘teachers shouldn’t have to sell their own blood to make rent’ & ‘billionaires with helipads and full-time workers on food stamps shouldn’t exist in the same society.”
