Trump Offers Pelosi Rare Support

American Action News

President Trump gave full backing to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in her quest to lead the bolstered Democratic caucus as Speaker of House, going so far as to tell reporters he would get her Republican votes if needed, and that liberals challenging her “are wasting their time.”  

Fox News reports:

“I like her, can you believe it?” Trump told reporters outside the White House before departing for California. “She’s tough and she’s smart, but she deserves to be speaker.”

Trump’s unlikely support comes as Pelosi faces a tough path to regaining the gavel — which she held between 2007-11, the last time Democrats controlled the House. While Pelosi had said she is “confident” she will be speaker, at least 17 House Democrats have signed onto a document saying they won’t support her. Meanwhile, Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, is mulling a leadership challenge and said she will announce her decision after Thanksgiving.

To get the gavel, Pelosi will first need to pick up a majority of the Democratic caucus in internal leadership elections, then go on to win an absolute majority of the House. If all those Democrats joined Republicans in voting against Pelosi on the floor, Pelosi would not have the votes for speaker.

But Trump told reporters that he would get Republicans to vote for her in the House if she needed Republican support.

Trump did not give any indication as to whether his olive branch represented a genuine act of bipartisanship or a political calculation, given Pelosi’s unpopularity.

  1. This guy is smokin some damn good weed. Pelosi has ruined California, and this clown wants to endorse her? What is the angle here? Whatever it is, it can’t be good.

    The dems took back the house, and this guy wants to stick his tongue down her throat.

    Just goes to show you how weak this man is, all bullshit, zero backbone.

    1. Kiss of death to Pelosi – brilliant move by Trump.
      Also known as strategy. Would you rather have a old Dem member thick with all the power brokers in CONgress as Speaker or some newer, less powerful shlep as Speaker?

  2. Because they are all on the same goddam team

    NOT OURS!!!

    There is no left
    There is no right

    There’s just them and us , and it’s time we put a stop to them fcking us

  3. Id do the same. She is a stooge. And may die soon. She plays the game and probably has some easy to find skeletons.
