AOC disavows her earlier suggestion Pelosi is racist

Cheney also hit back at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) for calling for abolishing the Department of Homeland Security.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, alleging discrimination by Rep. Pelosi, fueled the fire to this intense feud between tho women, and Rep. Pelosi said her comment was offensive. Also, the British navy says Iran tried to interfere with a British tanker in the Persian Gulf. I addressed that. How they're interpreting and carrying it to another place is up to them.

Ocasio-Cortez is of Puerto Rican descent, Pressley is African-American, Omar is an African immigrant, and Tlaib is Palestinian American.

The Green New Deal was largely ridiculed after Ocasio-Cortez published a FAQ document on her website containing outlandish and extreme policies in support of the plan.

Last month, Congress passed a $4.6 billion humanitarian aid package - the final vote was 305 to 102 - several liberal Democrats (including the entire Hispanic Caucus) were furious that they voted to give Trump any money that he could use for whatever he wanted including border security and detention centers. "I'm not anxious about me", said Pressley to the NY Post.

"So, again, you got a complaint?"

New York Couple Implanted with Wrong Embryos
The Manukyans, who were married in 2007, said that in March 2011, an embryo transfer had resulted in the birth of their daughter. A United States couple are suing a fertility hospital, saying the firm implanted their embryo accurate into a special lady.

Pelosi appeared to be trying to put the dispute behind her. "Clearly the speaker has been inclusive of women of color".

"I think so, I think so. I feel like we are at a very, it's a very qualified and supported position, at least in terms of evidence, and in terms of being able to make the argument, that we never should've created DHS in the early 2000s", Ocasio-Cortez said. "I don't think most of us are", Jayapal, the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, told Politico on Thursday.

A key progressive voice, Rep. Ro Khanna of Calfornia, who is friends with Ocasio-Cortez, told CNN that it is time to move on and rally around the Speaker. "Let's rally around the Speaker", Khanna said on Thursday. At the core of the matter was that Rep. Pelosi disrespected the freshmen representatives, primarily about their massive following on social media.

"We're actually setting up a meeting", Pocan replied when he was asked about the public divisions.

Jayapal was spotted speaking with Pelosi on the House floor on Thursday afternoon for around 10 minutes. But I do think if we don't have progress on racial justice it will be because of the new Dems and blue dogs. "I am anxious about the signal that it sends to people I speak to and for, who sent me here with a mandate, and how it affects them".

Jayapal said that in general she believes that Pelosi has been "very respectful of our members", but added, "It's always harder when it's perceived as coming from your own side, whether that was how it was intended or not, it's always much harder". We know that the American people do not want this to be a socialist nation.
