“Luckily, we still have open borders with Kentucky, we are free to travel there,” Corbin Trent told CNN. “We hope to visit and have a town hall, listen to concerns of workers in Kentucky.”
Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY) invited AOC to tour the coal mines in his home state during a heated debate last month over her Green New Deal.
“I want to invite the gentlelady to come to eastern Kentucky where thousands of coal miners no longer have paychecks,” he said. “I invite her to go underground with me and meet the men and women who do heroic work to power the American economy.”
Barr uninvited her after she blasted his fellow Republican Congressman, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas, over his criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s controversial comments about the 9/11 attacks.
