"If President Trump wants to throw a temper tantrum and shut down some departments and agencies over Christmas, that's certainly within his power, but he has two more sensible options available to him", Schumer said on the Senate floor.

Marcia Fudge, a former leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, to challenge Pelosi.

"They want a new generation that thinks differently and works harder and takes the caucus in a new direction".

"Here we are, a woman who has given her blood sweat and tears, who has sacrificed over and over and over again, who has had some of the most phenomenal accomplishments of any speaker to serve in the House", the Maryland Democrat said. While the tactic was an aggressive and unconventional one for a member of Congress, Pelosi praised the activists as "inspiring" - and Ocasio-Cortez commended her in return for agreeing to call for a select committee to address climate change, one of the group's requests. Much of it will be modeled on legislation that he and more than 160 House Democrats introduced in May.
