House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unloaded on 'the Squad' when talking about the progressive cohort to author Susan Page, whose book 'Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power' come out next week.

Axios reported some early details on Monday, including that Pelosi adopted a child-like voice when talking about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 31-year-old ringleader of the group, who was previously the youngest member of Congress.

In the book, Pelosi gives 'the Squad' blunt advice: 'You're not a one-person show. This is the Congress of the United States.'

Pelosi told friends and family to participate in the process too.

Pelosi didn't hold back in her assessment of some of her colleagues.

In their second sit-down, which occurred in July 2019, Page said Pelosi's dispute with 'the Squad' had 'exploded.'

'Her anger at the four new progressive congresswomen was palpable,' Page recalled.

Pelosi sat down for a meeting with Ocasio-Cortez later that month in an effort to minimize tensions.

Pelosi also told Page that Mitch McConnell, the top Senate Republican, 'is not a force for good in the country.'

'He is an enabler of some of the worst stuff, and an instigator of some of it on his own,' Pelosi said.

In an excerpt from the book posted on USA Today's website Friday, Page captures Pelosi's first conversation with now former President Donald Trump after he won the 2016 race.

Nancy Pelosi Was Set To Retire From Politics Before Trump Election Win in 2016: New Book

  Nancy Pelosi Was Set To Retire From Politics Before Trump Election Win in 2016: New Book Reports in "Madam Speaker" say that the shock of Hillary Clinton's defeat spurred the house speaker to stay on.Assured that the Democratic contender Hillary Clinton would prevail over her GOP rival, Pelosi had an eye on retiring and spending more time with her family, according to the book written by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page.

Pelosi, then in the minority, called Trump at Trump Tower to congratulate him on his win and offer her hope that they could work together.

'Nancy, me too,' Trump replied. 'We'll get some good things done.'

Trump told Pelosi that she could deliver 'better than anybody.'

'Don't forget, I was a supporter of yours,' Trump told the Democratic leader, a reference to a donation he had made to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee before becoming a Republican. 'I think you're terrific.'

Pelosi suggested to the incoming president that he schedule a session to talk to the Congressional Caucus for Women's Issues.

He put her on the phone with Ivanka Trump. 'Talk to my daughter about it,' Trump said.

'Now it was Pelosi’s turn to be surprised. The House Democratic leader found herself listening to Trump’s thirty-five-year-old daughter, whose résumé mostly involved working on enterprises named Trump, relay her thoughts on childcare policy,' Page wrote.

Page also revealed that Pelosi had planned to retire after the 2016 election of Hillary Clinton, as Clinton would have eclipsed her as the highest-ranking woman in American political history.

With Trump coming into office, that didn't happen.

The pain of Trump's election 'was physical, it was actually physical,' Pelosi told Page.

'Like a mule kicking you in the back over and over again,' Pelosi said.
