Wolf Blitzer grilling Pelosi on why she won't take $1.8T deal. Reads Ro Khanna tweet..
Pelosi: "I don’t know why you’re always an apologist and many of your colleagues are apologists for the Republican position-- Ro Khanna, that’s nice. That isn’t what we’re going to do."
Wolf says he's also spoken with Andrew Yang who says take the deal.
Pelosi: "Honest to God, I really can’t get over it. Because Andrew Yang, he’s lovely. Ro Khanna, he’s lovely. They’re not negotiating this situation."
"With all due respect you really don't know what you're talking about" Pelosi tells Wolf Blitzer as he presses her on why she won't take Mnuchin deal.
Wolf says Pelosi should call the president and say let’s make a deal.
Pelosi: “Look let me say this, the president has sent Mr Mnuchin to negotiate .. They do not share our values, have a little respect that we know something about these subjects.”
Wolf: "These are incredibly difficult times right now and we'll leave it on that note .."
Pelosi: "We'll leave it on the note that you are not right on this Wolf .."
Wolf: "It's not about me it's about millions of Americans.."
Pelosi: "And we represent them."
Wolf: "Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good."
Pelosi: "It is nowhere near perfect ...we're not even close to the good."
Pelosi: "Thank you for your sensitivity to our constituents' needs."
Wolf: "I am sensitive to them because I see them on the street begging for food, begging for money."
Pelosi: "Have you fed them? We feed them. We feed them."
