Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that her party ‘respects the value’ of every member after the Washington Post reported representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley felt isolated by the House speaker.

On Wednesday, Pelosi urged unity among fellow Democrats in the face of battles over the direction of the party and warned members to ditch Twitter and keep their disagreements private. While Pelosi did not mention any names, the Post identified them as ‘the four liberal freshmen known as “the Squad”‘.
