AOC hits back at Pelosi after she knocked progressives for voting against spending package

In response, Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter: “That public “whatever” is called public sentiment. And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country.”

In a second tweet, Ocasio-Cortez said she did not believe “it was a good idea for Dems to blindly trust the Trump admin when so many kids have died in their custody.”

“It’s a huge mistake,” she added. “This admin also refuses to hand over docs to Congress on the whereabouts of families. People’s lives are getting bargained, & for what?”
