The Squad’ Revives Feud with Pelosi

The four progressive congresswomen who are presently in a nasty feud with President Trump offered a not-so-subtle warning to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, the subsequent time she targets them out.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass, referred to as “The Squad,” sat down with “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King on Tuesday as the House voted to condemn Trump over tweets that Democrats labeled as racist formally.

King requested the congresswomen if they’ve been in touch with Pelosi.

“Our teams are in communication,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

“But shouldn’t you be meeting face-to-face?” King requested.

He also mentioned that She’s the new member, not the speaker, Tlaib interjected. She has every right to sit down along with her at any time, any time with any of us. She is Speaker of the House. She can request a meeting to sit down with us for clarification.

Tlaib continued, acknowledge fact that we are women of shade, so when they do single us out, be aware of that and what they’re doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats, because some of them are being singled out because of their backgrounds, because of their experiences and so forth.

King followed up with Ocasio-Cortez requesting if she was “focused on having a conversation” with Pelosi, which Ocasio-Cortez responded, “Completely.”

Last week, the four congresswomen had an ongoing public spat with Pelosi, which got very heated after Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the speaker was “singling out” them because they were “women of shade.” Pelosi previously refused their vocal opposition to the House’s approval for border funding.
