Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to belittle Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's affiliation with a progressive group in Congress in a new interview.

"One of the complaints we've heard is that you don't reach across the aisle", Stahl said.

She added that congressional Democrats "by and large. know that we have to hold the center, that we have to go down the mainstream", and said she "reject [s] socialism as an economic system".

McCarthy further noted the House was scheduled to vote on a two-year budget plan, but that Pelosi abandoned the vote after the progressive wing of her caucus demanded more spending on social programs and revolted against the legislation.

But Pelosi also stuck up for Omar in her current standoff with Trump.

"They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces", the speaker said.

Trump posted a brutal video of Rep. Omar on Friday that condemned the Democrat for her controversial remarks concerning the 9/11 terrorist attacks that killed thousands of Americans.

"And not to diminish the exuberance and the personality, and the rest of Alexandria and the other members...but the 43 districts-we won 43, net gain of 40-were right down the middle", Pelosi said.
