Pelosi says 'respects' value of every member

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that her party "respects the value" of every member of the caucus a day after she urged unity among fellow Democrats in the face of battles over the direction of the party and warned members to ditch Twitter and keep their disagreements private.

A day after urging unity among fellow Democrats, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said she received an "overwhelming response" from her party said she respects the value of every member.

"We respect the value of every member of our caucus," Pelosi said.

"The diversity of it all is a wonderful thing.

Diversity is our strength, unity is our power." On Wednesday, Pelosi urged unity among fellow Democrats in the face of battles over the direction of the party and warned members to ditch Twitter and keep their disagreements private.

"You got a complaint?

You come and talk to me about it.

But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK," Pelosi said during a closed meeting of House Democrats, according to a source who was in the room.

It was not clear if Pelosi, the top elected U.S. Democrat, was aiming her remarks at a specific lawmaker's tweet or issuing a general warning about using social media, the favorite means of communication for Republican President Donald Trump.

Pelosi's approach on matters ranging from protecting young immigrants in detention to whether to impeach Trump has faced resistance from some liberals, including progressives who swept into office in last year's elections when Democrats won control of the House of Representatives.

She reminded her caucus on Wednesday of the need for compromise given Republican control of the Senate and White House, making clear she had her eye on posting gains in the November 2020 elections.

Pelosi was meeting with her caucus for the first time since late June, when the liberal wing of her party failed to win stronger standards for the treatment of immigrants being detained at the southern border with Mexico.

All 435 House seats will be up for grabs next year, when Trump also faces re-election.

"We must win this next (House) election and it is no foregone conclusion that we will," Pelosi admonished her fellow Democrats.

Among the most outspoken House liberals are freshmen Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, sometimes known as "the squad." In an interview last week with the New York Times, Pelosi said: "All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world." She added: "But they didn't have any following." After Wednesday's closed-door meeting, Ocasio-Cortez told reporters she was willing to work in a collaborative way on the defense bill that she is seeking to amend.

Referring to last month's battle over the border aid bill, Ocasio-Cortez said it was "sloppy" because it was advanced in a "rushed process." This week's battle, however, is a "more deliberate, more transparent process," she said.

Donald Trump suggests delay in polls, cites mail-in voting 'fraud' l Key details

US President Donald Trump on Thursday asked for the US Elections to be delayed. "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???" Trump said. The date of the presidential election — the Tuesday after the first Monday in November in every fourth year — is enshrined in federal law and would require an act of Congress to change, including agreement from the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. One Republican governor, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, quickly shot down Trump's idea: “Make no mistake: the election will happen in New Hampshire on November 3rd. End of story. Our voting system in NH is secure, safe, and reliable. We have done it right 100% of the time for 100 years – this year will be no different."
