House OKs limiting Trump ability to strike Iran

House Dem Rips AOC and Her Staff for Their 'Ignorance'

Ocasio-Cortez replied, "No, no, absolutely not, absolutely not".

The row comes amid accusations by AOC and by other freshman democrats, namely: Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of MA.

The latest tweet was retweeted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's deputy chief of staff.

Ocasio-Cortez earlier claimed that there are only 12 years left to fix climate change.

"I believe these women", she said.

The House bill also includes an amendment that would bar Trump from attacking Iran without first obtaining Congress' approval.

Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Reps. That amendment was considered key to winning enough support from the most liberal Democrats for the NDAA to pass the House.

The United States House of Representatives approved a $733bn defence policy bill on Friday, defying Donald Trump's veto threat by including provisions that would put some limits on the USA president's authority when it comes to Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Ocasio-Cortez's distaste for Pelosi and other more "moderate" Democrats trickles down to her staff.

Republican lawmakers blamed Democrats for blocking sufficient aid to improve conditions and posing as helping while doing little.

Business secretary: 'no-deal Brexit will cost thousands of jobs'
But the former foreign secretary insisted his comments in the debate had been "misrepresented" and denied withholding his backing. Mr Johnson, in a separate interview with Neil, repeated his pledge to leave the European Union on October 31 "come what may".

House Democrats also approved amendments to block Trump's emergency arms sales to Saudi Arabia and end United States support for the Saudi-UAE war in Yemen.

"You know what my residents want me to talk about is the fact that they are the third poorest congressional district in the country and we need to focus on that", the Detroit rep said.

She and seven other representatives spoke to their colleagues on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform about their border visits.

Democrats accuse Trump of tolerating badly overcrowded and putrid holding facilities in a purposeful effort to discourage future immigrants. In the months to come, lawmakers must come up with a compromise version between the one passed by the House and the one passed last month in the Senate, where Trump's fellow Republicans hold power.

The report says some families were broken up even though the parents ended up not being prosecuted. Hundreds were held longer than previously revealed, including 25 kept more than a year, and at least 30 remain apart from their parents.

The Democrats call separating children "a deliberate, unnecessary and cruel choice" by President Donald Trump.

At a Wednesday evening meeting in Pelosi's office, Democratic Representative Derek Kilmer of Washington, chairman of the New Democratic Coalition, told Pelosi in stark terms that moderates were irate about Chakrabarti's tweet - specifically citing Representative Terri Sewell, Democrat of Alabama, a New Democrats cochair who is one of several moderate African-Americans representing a southern district.

Democrats and Republicans are fighting over the treatment of the arrivals, whose numbers have surpassed 100,000 monthly.

The president also had some words for another new progressive Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who is closely allied with Ocasio-Cortez. All were among House members who visited border stations last week.
