Congressional Black Caucus Chairman: Pelosi's Record 'Speaks for Itself'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's record stands for itself against President Donald Trump, Rep. Credric Richmond said Friday. 

"I'd put Nancy Pelosi's record up against Donald Trump's record any day. She ushered in the Affordable Care Act, which provided healthcare to millions and millions of Americans… so she has a great body of work and I don't think we should ever let people forget that," Richmond, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. 

"I think she's done a great job and her body of work speaks for itself," Richmond added.

Pelosi, a California Democrat, has taken heat from members of her party after Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel in Georgia's special election. 

"Well, I am chair of the Congressional Black Caucus and I will do what my membership dictates, and I think my membership has strong support for Nancy Pelosi," Richmond said. 

Some Democrats are calling for new leadership and on Thursday, three lawmakers, Reps. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., Seth Moulton, D-Mass., and Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, set up a meeting to discuss their dilemma. 

Richmond said the meeting was a "family discussion," and noted that some discussed a change in leadership, but the "gist of the conversation" was about Democrats' plans to retake Congress.

"We have to figure out a way to get back to the majority, and that is the most crucial point of where we are now," he added.
