"WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an unlikely defender: President Donald Trump.

Trump stuck up for Pelosi on Friday after freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York ramped up her criticism of the Democratic speaker.

Ocasio-Cortez accused Pelosi earlier this week of singling out “newly elected women of color” for criticism. Ocasio-Cortez’s comments and an earlier tweet by her chief of staff injected the possibility of racism into an ongoing spat between Pelosi and the progressive wing of the House Democratic Caucus.

Trump, who has had more than his own share of run-ins with Pelosi, came to her defense.

"I'll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do: She is not a racist,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday before departing for a trip to Wisconsin and Ohio.

Trump slammed Ocasio-Cortez for being “very disrespectful” to Pelosi. He added, “For them to call her a racist is a disgrace.”
