US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took a break from sparring with President Trump and quieting disputes within her own party Sunday evening to accept a Profile in Courage Award at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

The California congresswoman was honored for her work in passing the 2010 Affordable Care Act and for leading Democrats last year to regain control of the US House of Representatives and elect the “the most diverse Congress in our nation’s history,’’ according to organizers.

As Pelosi arrived on the red carpet outside the library with her family late Sunday afternoon, she told reporters she was “speechless’’ about the honor.
