GameStop: AOC claims Ted Cruz almost had her ‘MURDERED’ as they lash out at Wall Street billionaires

ALEXANDRIA Ocasio-Cortez claimed Ted Cruz almost had her "murdered" as they both lash out at Wall Street billionaires.

The wild claims came on Thursday afternoon, after the pair had a fired up back-and-forth about the GameStop saga.

"I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out," AOC wrote on Twitter.

"Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.

"In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign."

The huge allegations came while the Democrat and Republican were discussing GameStop shares.

GameStop and AMC shares plummeted on Thursday after Robinhood and WeBull blocked "Reddit rally" as politicians slammed the move to help Wall Street.

On Thursday morning, GameStop shares fell by more than 50 percent.

GameStop stock prices sunk to $126.01 by 11.20am on Thursday – which is drastically different than Wednesday morning, where the share price was $469.42.

At around 11.25am the stock price for AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc dropped to $6.52 – which is $9.77 less than yesterday morning.

In response to Robinhood preventing users from trading GameStop stocks, Donald Trump Jr tweeted: "Yea I don’t recall the part of the story when Robin Hood sells out and starts to be a mercenary for the crown…

"Apparently everyone has a price," he wrote, followed by "#ToTheMoon," "#GameStop" and rocket ship emojis.

AOC then took to Twitter: "This is unacceptable.

"We now need to know more about @RobinhoodApp’s decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock while hedge funds are freely able to trade the stock as they see fit.

"As a member of the Financial Services Cmte, I’d support a hearing if necessary."

She then followed up with a jab at Republicans, saying: "I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out.

"Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.

"In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign."

In response, Ted Cruz replied: "Fully agree."

This comment lead to the bold claim from AOC about Cruz almost having her "murdered."
