PROJECTION: Pelosi Claims Trump Will Not ‘Respect the Election’ Following 2020
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has made a shocking claim that President Donald Trump will refuse to accept the election results in 2020 if he loses to his Democrat challenger.
The baseless claim made by the House Majority Speaker follows years of Democrat officials refusing to accept the legal and lawful election results in 2016 when Trump defeated Crooked Hillary in unexpected fashion. Pelosi made the claim without a hint of irony.
“If we win by four seats, by a thousand votes each, he’s not going to respect the election,” the chutzpah-laden Congresswoman said. “We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that.”
“He would poison the public mind. He would challenge each of the races; he would say ‘you can’t seat these people,'” she added.
Pelosi claims that the Democrats “had to win” in 2018 in order to save the socialist agenda that she has been promoting during her decades as a career politician in Washington D.C.
“Imagine if we hadn’t won – oh, don’t even imagine. So, as we go forward, we have to have the same approach,” she said.
“Our passions were for health care, bigger paychecks, cleaner government – a simple message,” Pelosi added.
While advocating for socialism, Pelosi created some distance between radicals in her midst such as Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) who are essentially advocating for radical communism.
“We did not engage in some of the other exuberances that exist in our party,” she said.
Despite the fact that Pelosi believes that President Trump has “demonstrated on a daily basis his obstruction of justice,” she refuses to endorse impeachment measures.
“You’re wasting your time, unless the evidence is so conclusive that the Republicans will understand,” Pelosi said to the USA Today. “Otherwise, it’s a gift to the president. We take our eye off the ball.”
This has caused some prominent Democrats to begin turning on their entrenched leader.
“I felt she was rushing to judgment without all the information being in,” pro-impeachment billionaire donor Tom Steyer said. “She was, in effect, handing a veto to all the Republicans in terms of holding Mr. Trump to account.”
“I think even if we did not win, possibly, if there were not impeachment, I think history would smile upon us for standing up for the Constitution,” said Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who serves as the chair of the House Oversight Committee, to CBS’ Face the Nation.
“On the GOP standard we would have impeached Trump a long time ago for his hush money payoffs to his various mistresses in a way that violated campaign finance law,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said.
While Pelosi likes to make Trump an easy bogeyman, she is unwilling to risk much political capital to stop him in her role as House Speaker. She can criticize her opposition, but until she can get a hold of her own party, looking forward to unseating Trump in 2020 may be putting the cart before the horse.
