Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted the US economy was booming under President Trump over the weekend, but bizarrely warned most Americans simply aren’t living “the truth.”

“US GDP is at an all-time high. As a nation, we are more prosperous than we ever have been,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media. “But that’s simply not the lived truth. Even now, I’m paid similar to a doctor or corporate lawyer – many who‘d think they are ‘rich,’ but it’s nowhere near what we actually mean in policy.”

Recent economic reports show the US economy roaring to life in the first quarter of 2019, with more vacant positions than people seeking a job as the unemployment rate dropped to just 3.6%.
