Prominent investor Tracy Maitland has blasted socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), calling her "financially illiterate" while advocating her removal from office.

Maitland, the president and chief investment officer of Advent Capital Management, shredded the Democratic congresswoman at the National Action Network gathering over her lack of financial knowledge.

"The people campaigning against the Amazon campus are financially illiterate," Maitland said, according to the New York Post.

Ocasio-Cortez appeared alongside Maitland at the event for the National Action Network - a civil rights organization founded by the Reverend Al Sharpton - where she was widely criticized for using a strange accent during her talk as she addressed a predominantly African American audience.

After the event, Maitland told the Post: "This was a disgrace. I partially blame AOC for the loss of Amazon.

"She doesn’t know what she doesn’t know. That’s scary.

"We have to make sure she’s better educated or vote her out of office."

According to the Daily Wire, Ocasio-Cortez led the charge against Amazon which ended up costing New York 25,000 jobs and nearly $30 billion in tax revenue.

She later exploded at critics who correctly noted that she had no idea what she was talking about when it came to the Amazon deal.

Both Democrat New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Democrat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo slammed her for ruining the deal.

As Ocasio-Cortez has become more well-known, her poll numbers have taken a nose dive, as many Americans view her as far outside of the mainstream.

At home in the Bronx, her constituents feel she is ignoring them in favor of having a national platform.

"A Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday morning found that 23 percent of Americans had a favorable view of the member of Congress, while 36 percent had an unfavorable view — a -13 overall approval rating," the leftist publication Vox reported.

"This new poll isn’t a one-off finding. Three prior surveys — one in January from Morning Consult, one in February from Fox, and a third in mid-March from Gallup — all found that more Americans had negative views of AOC than had positive ones."

Another poll found that three times more people viewed her as a villain than as a hero after she sabotaged the Amazon deal.

Ocasio-Cortez's other fringe views have largely contributed to the decline in her poll numbers, including her call for banning all semi-automatic firearms and implementing a $93 trillion climate policy that is loaded with entitlement programs that will bankrupt the country.

Ocasio-Cortez has also faced a growing corruption scandal — there have been multiple FEC complaints filed against her and her chief-of-staff that allege serious campaign finance violations.

Ocasio-Cortez also aligns herself with and defends notorious anti-Semites Linda Sarsour, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

While speaking at the National Action Network, Ocasio-Cortez was criticized for talking in an accent that she does not regularly use to an audience of predominantly black people.

The move drew scorn from many African-Americans who suggested she was racist and was pandering.

"This is what organizing looks like, this is what building power looks like, this is what changing the country looks like," Ocasio-Cortez said in a southern accent while speaking in New York City.

"I'm proud to be a bartender, ain't nothin' wrong with that."

"There's nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy," Ocasio-Cortez continued.

"There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat.

"There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work."
