Trump and Pelosi Team Up Against AOC

AOC disavows her earlier suggestion Pelosi is racist

The newly-elected politician from NY was quick to attack Pelosi and went as far as implying that she is a racist and has a habit of disrespecting congresswomen of color - Reps.

Ocasio-Cortez and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have been at odds over a number of issues this week.

The House measure, which cuts President Donald Trump's $750 billion request for the military by $17 billion, is still too rich for some progressives, who also balk at its continued funding of overseas military operations. Chakrabarti's attack on the party leadership was followed his boss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez herself accusing Speaker Pelosi of singling out "women of color" in the party after she (Pelosi) had referenced his tweets and warned in a closed door meeting against party cadres airing grievances in public.

The measure, which would require Trump to first receive Congressional approval before launching strikes against Iran, passed on July 12 in the Democratic-controlled lower house by a vote of 251-170.

Just last month, as House Democrats clamored for impeachment proceedings against Trump, the president told Fox News Channel that Pelosi is a "nasty, vindictive, horrible" person. Republican operatives, who have had to live with the embarrassment of a shambolic administration and a off-kilter President for more than two years, are relishing every moment of what Trump aide KellyAnne Conway described as a "huge catfight" and a "major meow moment" - among Democrats. "They represent the best of American democracy". Her members, mostly moderates, and her nonwhite members did what they should have done a few months ago: Tell Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her three "squad" members - Reps.

Welder, who was seen as further to the left than Davids, lost by just over 2,000 votes in the Democratic primary.

"I don't think that Nancy can let that go on... I find their ignorance to be beyond belief about American history", he said. "For them to call her a racist is a disgrace".

China June soybean imports fall on trade war, deadly pig disease
China's total exports ticked up 0.1 percent on-year during the first six months while imports fell 4.3 percent. China's global exports sank 1.3 percent to $212.8 billion while imports fell 7.3 percent to $161.9 billion.

In an odd twist of event, Fox News host Sean Hannity, who is a close confidant of Trump, made a decision to invite Ocasio-Cortez to join his prime-time show for a full hour.

Tlaib, for her part, last Sunday told ABC's Martha Raddatz suggested that Pelos doesn't know what it feels like to be "dehumanized", but The Squad does, and that they four wouldn't " stand by and sit idly by and allow brown and dark-skinned children to be ripped away from their parents to be dehumanized", which she implied was what Pelosi was doing.

What's emerged since then has been a remarkable back-and-forth, including Ocasio-Cortez blasting Pelosi for singling out women of color in a "disrespectful" way.

Senator Tom Udall, one of the sponsors of the Senate measure on Iran, said the Senate had sent a "clear message" to Trump, even though the measure was blocked. She's on Twitter. She tweets about the show.

"Because you can't get your way, and because you are-, you're getting pushback, you resort to use the race card?"

"Brent can win, he can win", Ocasio-Cortez said past year on The Dig, a podcast from far-left Jacobin magazine, according to The Intercept.
