House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday she can't accept the so-called fast-track legislation the president seeks. Many unions and their Democratic supporters are wary of such presidential authority.
Pelosi told a steelworkers' rally that the proposed fast-track legislation is, in her words, "out of the question."
Pelosi later told reporters at a House Democratic gathering that she is not rejecting "the president's trade agenda." But she says she wants changes to the fast-track proposal.
Pelosi is a California Democrat and former House speaker.
