The youngest woman ever elected to Congress has a problem - she can't afford her rent. That is until she starts her new job in January.
Axar.az reports citing BBC. After telling the New York Times she's waiting for her first pay cheque before renting an apartment in Washington DC, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is again being called the "millennial Congresswoman".
On Friday Fox News presenter Ed Henry suggested the 29-year-old wasn't telling the full truth because she wore "multi-thousand dollar outfits" in a magazine.
Ms Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter, pointing out the clothes were lent to her for the photo shoot.
Her comments - "I've really been just kind of squirreling away and then hoping that gets me to January" - got many on Twitter empathising with her.
"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez not being able to afford DC rent is the most millennial thing ever and I honestly vibe with it," tweeted one user.
