Pelosi: “we’re capitalists; that’s just the way it is.”

At a CNN town hall on January 31, Trevor Hill, an NYU student, posed the following question to Nancy Pelosi (D-CA):

I wonder if there is anywhere you feel the Democrats could move farther left, to a more populist message, the way the alt-right has sort of captured this populist strain on the right wing—if you think we could make a more stark contrast to right-wing economics.

Pelosi laughed and responded by saying, “we’re capitalists; that’s just the way it is.”
