New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) didn't share Ocasio-Cortez's sentiments though.
"Amazon chose to come to New York because we are the capital of the world and the best place to do business. We compete in and won the most hotly contested national economic development competition in the United States, resulting in at least 25,000-40,000 good paying jobs for our state and nearly $30 billion dollars in new revenue to fund transit improvements, new housing, schools and countless other quality of life improvements," Cuomo said in a statement. "Bringing Amazon to New York diversified our economy away from real estate and Wall Street, further cementing our status as an emerging center for tech and was an extraordinary economic win not just for Queens and New York City, but for the entire region, from Long Island to Albany's nanotech center."
