House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought to smooth over public grievances with high-profile progressive Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as she emerged from a private meeting with the New York freshman Friday morning.
"I don't think there ever was any hatchet. We're in a political arena," Pelosi said Friday.
"I don't think we have that many differences," Pelosi also told reporters.
"I do think that we sat down today, we had a good meeting," Pelosi said. "And the Congresswoman is a very gracious member of Congress. We had a very positive conversation about our districts and how we represent them. Our country. And how we need to meet the needs, the diversity of America, and the challenges we face in terms of issues and how immigration and people are respected."
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
