Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claimed that no other American has been as dangerous to the country as President Trump.
Nancy Pelosi blasted President Trump in an interview with Variety published Tuesday and urged the Dems to come together for the 2020 election to ensure that Donald Trump becomes a single-term president.
“We have the most dangerous person in the history of our country sitting in the White House,” she said.
“That’s different from what happened in 2016. People thought Hillary would win, so they didn’t all turn out. Nobody could possibly think that somebody like Donald Trump could be elected president of the United States. But if you don’t turn out, those who do turn out will call the shots.”
The California Democrat said that her biggest beef with Trump was that he does not respect the Constitution. She claimed that President Trump’s pattern of lying could harm children around the country, a line she won’t let be crossed.
“I have real problems with this president because he doesn’t tell the truth, he doesn’t honor the Constitution, and he’s harming children,” Pelosi explained. “My whole message is about children. Anybody who hurts children — I’m a lioness. Watch out.”
Pelosi and Trump have had several exchanges of harsh words since he took office in 2017. Pelosi led the effort to impeach the president in December, a move she said she didn’t regret despite his acquittal in the Senate.
“He gave us no choice. He was in such violation. He made Nixon look like a babe in the woods compared to what he did. Violating our Constitution, undermining our national security and jeopardizing the security and integrity of our elections,” Nancy Pelosi said.
She added: “He will never be vindicated. He can say all he wants about acquit this or that. He’ll never be vindicated.”
