Trump said Friday. "She is not a racist".
"When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm's distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood", Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Post. "It shows they have no sensibility to different members from our caucus". Unity is our power.
"I've said what I'm going to say", Pelosi said.
Supporters of Mrs Pelosi have since come out to criticise the statements of Ocasio-Cortez and her allies.
The aforementioned "guy" is Saikat Chakrabarti, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff.
Speaking to reporters on Friday while preparing to board Marine One, Trump said "I'll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do, she is not a racist. OK?" "Clearly the speaker has been inclusive of women of color".More news: United Kingdom police launch investigation into leaked ambassador cables
The tweet was "insulting" and "a big issue, " he added. "I think the African-American community deserves an apology for that".
Sitting at the same witness table as their Democratic counterparts, four border state Republicans blamed the Democratic Party for the problem.
Chakrabarti responded to the House Democrats' Twitter handle Friday night, asking why they did not point out that he was responding to someone else who brought up Davids.
The tweet is just another jab in the ongoing tension in the House of Representatives' Democratic caucus.
Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said comparing the detention camps to Nazi concentration camps - a pointed swipe at Ocasio-Cortez, who has used the analogy - doesn't help solve the problem.
Palmer also said that the leftward push by those Democrats offered voters a "clear choice", which will come into play in the 2020 general election.More news: Rich Energy trying to save Haas deal, blames ‘rogue’ individual
He went on to say that Ocasio-Cortez "should not be doing what she's doing" and that she is being "very disrespectful to somebody that's been there a long time".
"If one-half of the things they're saying about her are true, she shouldn't even be in office", Trump said.
Earlier that day, Pelosi told fellow Democrats in a closed-door meeting not to air their grievances with other Democrats. "She is a phenomenal new member who flipped a red seat blue".
"What a weak argument, because you can't get your way and because you're getting pushback, you resort to using the race card?" It also came days before Trump-ordered nationwide raids targeting people in the USA illegally are expected to begin, according to administration officials and immigrant activists, actions that would further inflame the issue. "But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just ok".
"That public "whatever" is called public sentiment", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Saturday.
"I don't really want to get in this back and forth, " he said.More news: Pence acknowledges 'tough stuff' at border detention centre
