‘No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars’: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams billionaires for exploiting workers

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez argues that people become billionaires only by exploiting workers and preying on vulnerable and less privileged people.

“No one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars,” she told the author Ta-Nehisi Coates at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event this week. Ocasio-CortezĀ shared a NowThis clip of their discussion on Twitter.

Coates, adopting the role of the hypothetical billionaire, asked the lawmaker to elaborate.
