AOC: NYers “Too Scared” to go to hospital because of “Trump’s xenophobic COVID response”

Saturday morning, progressive lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:

Corona, Queens is the most heavily COVID-impacted zip code in America. I can tell you 1st hand that many ppl are too scared to go to the hospital & continue to work bc of Trump’s xenophobic COVID response.

In that uncertainty, street vendors are stepping up and saving lives

AOC received some support.

One Twitter user wrote “When ICE deportations were ramping up in this community, @AOC’s office had volunteers passing out fliers to let folks know their rights. I was one, but only speak English. It was the street vendors helping ppl like me pass out fliers”

Many others on Twitter were baffled or unimpressed with AOC’s claim.
