Carlson said it was “hard to argue with” the progressive newcomer’s criticism of e-commerce giant Amazon, which has received $2 billion in tax incentives in exchange for locating its two new headquarters in Long Island City, New York, and Arlington, Virginia.
Ocasio-Cortez, who won her race for a U.S. House seat in New York’s 14th District at last week’s midterm elections, railed against Amazon’s announcement in a series of tweets:
“Hate to admit it but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a very good point,” Carlson responded on his show.
“That’s the only time I’ve ever agreed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but it’s hard to argue with the internal logic of her point. The richest man in the world just got $2 billion in taxpayer subsidies? How does that work?” he added.
