WATCH: AOC Blames Trump Over Iran Conflict, Claims He’s Warmongering

Media sensation Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has finally chimed in on the Iran conflict and as expected, used it to attack President Trump.

There is no credible evidence at this time the U.S. did anything illegal to provoke Iran into shooting down their drone, AOC nevertheless told a reporter “Yeah — I think they’re (Trump admin) trying to goad us into a military conflict that’s completely irresponsible.”

Per the DailyBeast, the U.S. military drone Iran shot down over the Persian Gulf on Thursday was a high-flying prototype model belonging to the Navy.

The Navy for years has deployed the Broad Area Maritime Surveillance Demonstrator, or BAMS-D, drones on an emergency basis, stationing the 737-size unmanned aerial vehicles to watch over Syria and Iran.

The unarmed BAMS-D drone “was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile system while operating in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz,” Navy Capt. Bill Urban, a U.S. Central Command spokesperson, told The Daily Beast via email.

“Iranian reports that the aircraft was over Iran are false,” Urban added.

The Pentagon’s decision to deploy the rare BAMS-D underscores the military’s urgency amid escalating tensions between the United States and Iran. Prior to the shoot-down, the Navy possessed just four copies of the BAMS-D, which is a naval variant of the RQ-4 Global Hawk that Northrop Grumman builds for the Air Force.

A single Global Hawk sells for more than $200 million, counting the cost of its sensors. Operators control the drone from work stations on the ground, beaming commands via satellite to the pilotless aircraft.


Twitter users supporting Trump quickly fired back.

Every time I think she couldn’t be anymore ignorant, she proves me wrong.

She sounded like a kid repeating something she heard her mom say.

She’s too stupid to know how this happened.

Democrats gave Iran billions to fund terrorism.

100% fact. And now they are blaming Trump.

Wasting your breath on AOC who does not know anything.

Iran shot down a $100 Million American drone in international airspace you moron.
