On a trip to the U.K. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi dismissed the idea of democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) being representative of the Democratic Party.

In the sit-down with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes on Sunday, the 79-year-old Pelosi was asked about pushback she received from the left-wing of her own party. "And you yourself said that you're the only one who can unify everybody".

House Democrats' resounding victory in the November midterm elections, which allowed Pelosi to retake the speaker's gavel after almost a decade, also brought new, outspoken progressive lawmakers to Congress, including some self-described democratic socialists like Reps.

She added that congressional Democrats "by and large. know that we have to hold the center, that we have to go down the mainstream", and said she "reject [s] socialism as an economic system".

Newsweek's report on Pelosi's remarks speculated that she could have been signaling her resistance to members of her Party who are lurching to the far left. "And she's a wonderful member of Congress, I think all of our colleagues will attest", the California Democrat said. "If people have that view, that's their view", Pelosi told Stahl.

Pelosi admitted she also has no trouble in her San Francisco district, which is one of the most liberal parts of the country. 'That is not the view of the Democratic Party'.

Trump also bashed Pelosi for defending Rep. Ilhan Omar who has been making headlines over her controversial remarks about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in NY.

"Nancy Pelosi just won't stop trolling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez", quipped Chris Cillizza at CNN - and Lawless provided her thoughts as to why. Tuition-free higher education, Medicare-for-all, and support for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal have all emerged as early litmus tests.

"But those are districts that are solidly Democratic".

"We didn't have a speaker who would bring a gun Bill to the floor", she said. She continued, saying a glass of water could win an election in districts like Ocasio-Cortez's.

"For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it", Omar said at CAIR in California last March.
