Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez ‘should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect’: Trump
President Donald Trump on Friday renewed attacks on freshman Democratic lawmakers Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezand Ilhan Omar and came to the defense of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Trump lashed out at Ocasio-Cortez for her recent remarks responding to Pelosi’s criticism of the “Squad” — the group of four freshman including Ocasio-Cortex and Omar. She had said Pelosi was “singling out” Democratic women of color for criticism, calling it “disrespectful.”
“I think Cortez is being very disrespectful to somebody who’s been there a long time,” Trump said to reporters as he left the White House for fundraisers in Wisconsin and Ohio. I deal with Nancy Pelosi a lot and we go back and forth and it’s fine, but I think that a group of people is being very disrespectful to her. And you know what, I don’t think that Nancy can let that go on.”
“But Cortez should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect,” Trump added. “She should not be doing what she’s doing. And I’ll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do. She is not a racist, okay. She is not a racist. For them to call her a racist is a disgrace.”

Lots of people are siding with Pelosi on this one.

Dems lose patience with ‘complete fraud’ AOC, rally to Pelosi’s side
House Democrats and their aides are quickly losing patience with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her office’s nonstop sparring with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other long-serving members, suggesting the speaker’s dismissive comments toward her may represent the view of a growing section of the caucus.
“She is a complete fraud,” one senior Democratic source told Fox News on Friday, succinctly summing up members’ frustration.
The last straw, for some, was the lawmaker’s claim that Pelosi was uniquely disrespectful to minority congresswomen. One senior lawmaker, who is black, scorched Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday for allegedly using the race card against the speaker, calling her comments “so inappropriate.”
Some lawmakers have even turned the tables, arguing that a group aligned with her is targeting black lawmakers for potential primary challenges in questioning those comments.
AOC is wearing out her welcome very quickly.
