House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., accused CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer of being “an apologist”.
The anchor had asked her about a tweet by Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., encouraging the speaker to accept the Trump administration’s offer of $1.8 trillion in stimulus.
“Nancy Pelosi take this deal!” Andrew Yang, a former Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted on Saturday. “Put politics aside people are hurting.”
President Trump and Democrats both agree that Americans need another round of stimulus checks. The two sides, however, cannot agree on the amount of aid needed for local governments and unemployed workers.
