New York community leaders reportedly stormed out of a closed meeting with US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday after some felt 'revolted' when she criticized Donald Trump and the US. AOC held the close gathering in the Bronx borough with Community Board 11 members but proved too controversial for two military veterans at least. One of the issues that sparked a sickening feeling in some was when a Middle Eastern member of the Community Board 11 asked for her thoughts on the conflict in Yemen. Silvio Mazzella (pictured right in red), who served in the Vietnam War from 1966 to 1968, felt compelled to leave. He said: 'She knocks the country, she knocks the president. And that's not what America is about.'
