If a picture says a thousand words, this one may do a lot to show that two powerful members of Congress can disagree on issues, but still have respect for each other.
Today, Congresswoman @RepAOC and I sat down to discuss working together to meet the needs of our districts and our country, fairness in our economy and diversity in our country. pic.twitter.com/eVp1LS0Gpw— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) July 26, 2019
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi met with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for a 30-minute private meeting today. The high profile Congresswomen reportedly covered a lot of issues. Afterward, Pelosi said remarked, “In a family, you have your differences but you’re still a family.” The AP writes:
Pelosi told reporters that “I don’t think we have that many differences” despite some sharp words back and forth recently with “AOC.”
When asked if she buried the hatchet with AOC, Pelosi said “I don’t think there was a hatchet.” Watch what else she said from Bloomberg above.
No reaction yet from Ocasio-Cortez.
