The New York Post has hit out at New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the price of merchandise being sold on her website.

The congresswoman is currently fundraising with sweatshirts, T-shirts and other apparel bearing slogans that include: ''Abolish ICE,'' ''Tax the rich,'' and ''Drink water & don’t be racist,'' some of which cost about $60.

The Post notes that ''The line of merchandise caught the eye of pundits on Twitter who pointed out the hypocrisy of an anti-capitalism legislator coming up with their own clothing line.''

The newspaper adds, ''It’s a very premature fundraising exercise given the Bronx-born lawmaker only just staved-off a challenge where her campaign hauled in a hefty $17.3 million in donations, according to the New York Times.''

Ocasio-Cortez responded in a tweet on Thursday.

''Republicans are freaking out [because] we don’t use slave-wage labor for merch that funds grassroots organizing,'' she wrote.

''But what’s the difference between Trump’s merch and ours? Ours is made in the US,'' she added.
