Canadian businessman, investor, and Journalist, popularly called “Mr. Wonderful,” Kevin O’Leary has lashed out at the economic policies of the Democrats. While labeling New York as uninvestable under the party’s administration, O’Leary singled out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for being “great at killing jobs.”
O’Leary explained his description of the state by sharing details of an investment relocated from the state to Norway. O’Leary added that the environment of the Empire State was hostile to businesses.
“The regulatory environment is punitive. I had a project in Upstate New York behind the grid in Niagara Falls for electricity — a global data center we were building. Eventually, it got so bad with the politicians in the local region and the state policy we moved it to Norway, and all the jobs. Norway has it now — thousands of jobs coming out of that,” the investor said on CNN Airwaves.

The businessman added that he would take the officials on in a debate any time, especially AOC.
O’Leary described AOC as great at killing jobs, adding that the leftist congresswoman has taken thousands of jobs from New Yorkers.
According to a report by Daily Wire, Amazon backed out of a proposal to build a massive headquarters in New York City four years ago. The billion-dollar E-commerce platform opted out based on strong opposition from AOC and other Democrats.
The businessman commented on the Amazon project expected to produce about 25,000 jobs.
“Where did Amazon take their jobs? They took them away from her. She threatened to sue them if they created jobs. I mean, this is a reality,” O’Leary said while justifying his claims that AOC is a job killer.
