Amazon opts out of building New York City headquarters

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

This whole story of Amazon not coming to New York City. Is this going to end up blamed on Alexandria, Cossio Cortez? Well, her and and every other far left democrat Laker. Yes. And so Amazon announced today that it is backing out of plans to open up the new headquarters the HQ to New York City. They blamed local politicians who had opposed our presence and will not work with us. That's what they said in the announcement today. So they'd set back in December. They were going to be building their twenty five thousand employees. We're going to be there. Some of them would be brought in from other places. Of course, it's not twenty five thousand people in that one neighborhood. Suddenly now have jobs, but still twenty five thousand employees. That's that ain't bad thing about all the cities that were rolling out the red carpet plea, Amazon and Amazon was getting a lot in return.

It's gotten so big. How can you not use it people hate it? But it's like, oh, it's convenient now. Now Amazon said there was a seventy percent approval in New York City of for this project. And it just depends on what polls you look at. But on average it looks like about it was more than half fifty six percent of New Yorkers wanted. This to be here wanted this to be there. I mean, the Richard picks influence people one way or another. That was earlier this week. They said, yes, a majority of New Yorkers like this business. You're getting there. That's twenty five thousand jobs. It's a good thing. But the Alexandro Cossio Cortez's of the world chase them away. And they said fine. We'll take our
