Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is “absolutely not” racist after accusing her the day before of targeting four women of color in the House for criticism.

“No, no, absolutely not,” Ocasio-Cortez told CNN when asked if she believed Pelosi was racist or motivated by racial animus.

“We’re not talking just about progressives, it’s singling out four individuals and knowing the media environment we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats we get, knowing the amount of concentration of attention, I think it’s worth asking why,” she added.

Pelosi responded to a question about the feud at a press conference Thursday morning, and declared she “will not be discussing it any further.”  Watch her comments in the video below:
