House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday said Rep. Maxine Waters should not apologize for calling on protesters to “get more confrontational” if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is cleared in George Floyd’s death.

“No she doesn’t,” Pelosi told CNN reporter Annie Grayer when asked if Waters should apologize. Asked if Waters’ remarks will incite violence, the speaker replied, “Absolutely not.”
