Fox Host Pushes Back Against AOC
(UnitedVoice.com) – Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is involved in another feud, this time with Fox Business host Charles Payne.
The two got into it after AOC made inflammatory claims that President Donald Trump’s campaign was giving money to black people, essentially bribing them to vote for him. Payne tweeted about the remarks, which she made on Instagram after the State of the Union Address:
Whoa! @AOC making damning claims that the Trump campaign is paying Black Americans at his campaign rally. Trump must have struck a nerve during SOTU last night.

The congresswoman was irritated that the host called her out and responded:
I’m not “making claims” that Trump campaign allies are holding events in Black communities to hand out envelopes of cash.

On his show, Payne had to break down the facts for AOC. He explained the event she was talking about was organized by the Urban Revitalization Coalition in an effort to promote opportunity zones in Cleveland.
It was not an official Trump campaign event. Rest assured, the president is not handing out bundles of cash — to anyone.
