Pelosi predicts ‘what’s his name’ would fail in White House race in 2024
Sept. 16 (Reuters) – Former US President Donald Trump could run for the White House in 2024, but if he does, he will take his place in American history as a double loser, the President of the United Kingdom predicted Thursday. the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.
Visiting England for a meeting of parliamentary leaders from G7 countries, the Democratic leader was invited during a forum to reflect on the two impeachment proceedings she initiated against Trump in late 2019 and in January 2021.
Seizing the opportunity to score a political point against the man who continues to be the most powerful force in the Republican Party, Pelosi proclaimed, âI never talk about him.
However, she continued to talk about Trump, but not by name.
“I call him from time to time ‘What’s his name,'” Pelosi said, quickly adding: “If he wants to run again, he will be the first president to be impeached twice and defeated twice.”
His remarks were warmly applauded by the predominantly British public.
Throughout Trump’s four years in the White House, Pelosi has meddled with the president over immigration policy, infrastructure investments, the pandemic response and a wide range of others. domestic and foreign issues.
She gained a reputation for being eager to skewer hard-hitting Trump and became one of the biggest thorns on her side as she initiated not one, but two impeachment proceedings against him.
The Republican-controlled Senate has acquitted Trump every time.
The former president is already playing a role in the 2022 midterm elections for Congress by recruiting challengers from Republican lawmakers he meddled with. And Trump has dropped many hints that he may run for president for the third time in 2024.
âI say to my Republican friends, and I have a few, ‘Take back your party,’â Pelosi said. “You have now been hijacked by a sect that is simply not good for our country.”
