US House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California holds a press conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, December 17, 2015. US lawmakers have announced the creation of a group to promote US interests as newly restored US-Cuba relations evolve. Twelve lawmakers from both parties did so in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. The Cuba Working Group in the House of Representatives is to be formally created on December 17, 2015. It will push to "advance policy proposals that are in our national interest in an era in which the US-Cuba relationship is rapidly being reshaped," the letter said. Thursday marks the one year anniversary of the announcement by the US and Cuba that they would restore ties severed during the Cold War.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi hit back on Thursday at speculation that her leadership position was in danger, saying that her following in the U.S. is “unsurpassed by anybody.”

“I can take the heat and that’s why I stay in the kitchen,” Pelosi told the Associated Press. “I have a following in the country that’s unsurpassed by anybody, unless they’re running for president.”

Pelosi faces unprecedented opposition to her position in Democratic leadership, with Republicans and President Trump attempting to position her as a villain and with dozens of Democrats lining up to oppose her quest for Speaker if the party wins back control of the House in this year’s midterms.
