The House's top Democrat is strongly opposing President Barack Obama's bid for greater leeway in making trade deals with other nations.
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.
