AOC Under Fire for Selling a “Tax the Rich” Sweatshirt for $58 on Her Online Store

AOC is under fire for selling a “Tax the Rich” sweatshirt on her online campaign store for $58.

One Twitter user wrote “AOC is selling $65 dollar sweatshirts that say “tax the rich” that only rich ppl can afford. Should just say “Tax Me.”

Apparently the price may have changed.

Another wrote:

Tax the Rich sweatshirt from @AOC: $66.76 incl. shipping.

Tax the Rich sweatshirt from @Amazon: as low as $29.99 with free shipping.

AOC defended herself by tweeted:

Republicans are freaking out bc we don’t use slave-wage labor for merch that funds grassroots organizing.

But what’s the difference between Trump’s merch and ours?

Ours is made in the US. Flag of United States

(& for GOP who joke that we shld give T-shirt for free, we actually do – just volunteer Winking face)

The Team Trump Twitter account fired back:

Every single piece of our merchandise is made in the USA

As usual, you don’t know what you’re talking about!
