Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), who had previously called for new leadership in the House Democratic Caucus, said that House Democrats are “absolutely” united behind House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski asked Ryan, who had been one of Pelosi’s most vocal critics in recent years, whether House Democrats who were skeptical of Pelosi in the past are now united behind here going into the new Congress.

“Yeah, absolutely,” Ryan said. “I don’t think anyone at any point questioned her ability to negotiate, for her to be in rooms like the one she’s going to be in today, like the one she was in last week, and be as effective as anybody else in our caucus or in our party.”

“I think that Donald Trump, I think, understands that now, and we have all the confidence that she will advocate on our behalf and get the best deal possible for the American people,” Ryan added.
