Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) told reporters she wasn’t offended by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) calling the Green New Deal a “green dream” at a press conference unveiling the resolution on Thursday.

During a recent interview with Politico, Pelosi seemed to be critical of the Green New Deal.

According to Politico:

Pelosi said Wednesday, however, the panel would not be tasked with writing a specific bill, and brushed off the idea of the Green New Deal as a “suggestion.”

“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi said. “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?”

A reporter asked Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday whether she was offended that Pelosi called the Green New Deal “the green dream.”

“No, I think it is a green dream,” Ocasio-Cortez said, smiling. “I don’t consider that to be a dismissive term. I think it’s a great term.”
