In an interview with the The New York Times, Pelosi said she believed the four lawmakers made themselves irrelevant by voting against what she referred to as “our bill,” which passed in a 305-102 vote with 91 other Democrats also voting against it. 

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” she added. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

In response, Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter: “That public “whatever” is called public sentiment. And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country.”

In a second tweet, Ocasio-Cortez said she did not believe “it was a good idea for Dems to blindly trust the Trump admin when so many kids have died in their custody.”

“It’s a huge mistake,” she added. “This admin also refuses to hand over docs to Congress on the whereabouts of families. People’s lives are getting bargained, & for what?”
