Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a lower approval rating than President Donald J. Trump in the liberal stronghold of New York after she celebrated the city losing a contract with Amazon that would have resulted in new jobs and infrastructure.
Ocasio-Cortez celebrated last month when Amazon nixed its plans to build a new headquarters in New York City, writing on Twitter that “New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed,” however, new polling suggests the majority of New Yorkers disagree with her assessment.
Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world. https://t.co/nyvm5vtH9k

New poll results from the Sienna College Research Institute reveals that Ocasio-Cortez only clocks in at 31 per cent of New Yorkers viewing her favorably, while the besieged president is viewed favorably by 36 per cent of the city.
Additionally, 38 per cent of those polled said they view Ocasio-Cortez as a “villain” for her role in the Amazon debacle. More residents considered Ocasio-Cortez a “villain” than any other person or group polled, including labor unions, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Governor Andrew Cuomo, or even Amazon itself. Only 26 per cent of those polled considered Amazon a “villain.”
61 per cent of those polled also view Cuomo’s attempt to incentivize Amazon to reconsider its decision in a positive light.
Ocasio-Cortez’s stunts may have an impact on the wider New York Democrat Party as well, as a plurality of those polled said that they do not believe New York is headed in the right direction after three months under Democrat control. This belief is held by 79 per cent of Republicans, 65 per cent of Independents, 26 per cent of Democrats, and 48 per cent of all residents who were polled.
While neither President Trump or Ocasio-Cortez are seen favorably by the majority of residents, or even 40 per cent, it is notable that the Democrat darling is seen less favorably than the president, who has been demonized by the media and Democrats for nearly four years.
BLM Supporter Arrested for Killing a Police Officer As His Mother Posts About the Crime on Facebook
Henry Washington is charged with murder.
An Arizona man has been arrested and charged with homicide in the shooting death of a Bothell, Washington police officer, with his own mother posting about her son’s admission of the crime on Facebook within hours of his arrest on Tuesday.
Officer Aaron Snell of the Bothell Police Department identified Officer Jonathan Shoop, 32, as the deceased following a shootout in which Shoop sought to pull over the driver of a Pontiac G6 on Monday night. The driver of the vehicle allegedly stepped out and began opening fire at the police SUV conducting the traffic stop, later fleeing Highway 522 on foot.
Officers responding to the scene found two police officers wounded by gunfire. Snell, who had joined the Bothell Police in 2019, died of his wounds. Another officer was wounded in the shootout, but is expected to survive.
Law enforcement later arrested a suspect, 37-year old Henry Washington, as he was allegedly hiding on the roof of a small business a short distance away from the highway shootout location. Washington was injured, and was later charged with homicide, vehicular assault, and felony assault.
Police scanner audio reveals that Washington had supposedly called a hospital in Arizona, admitting that he had killed a police officer and needed medical treatment.

Washington is a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, judging from his affiliation with the movement on his Facebook profile picture.
In a strange twist, an account belonging to Carolyn Washington, who identifies as Washington’s mother, posted that her son had killed a police officer on her public account early on Wednesday morning, asking for prayers in the wake of her son’s crime.
Another of Washington’s Facebook photos shows the man wielding a firearm in an unsafe manner, pointing it at a cameraman who is taking his picture.
Washington has been denied bail at his first court appearance for the triple felony charges, and is currently being detained at the King County Jail.
Officer Shoop was a Coast Guard veteran who leaves behind two brothers, his mother, and his girlfriend.
