Nancy Pelosi couldn’t believe her ears when Trump defended her for an insane reason
Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi are sworn enemies.
They are both working to push competing policies into law.
And that’s why Nancy Pelosi couldn’t believe her ears when Trump defended her for an insane reason.
While President Trump may be Nancy Pelosi’s biggest enemy, he is far from her only enemy.
In fact, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to prove herself as a thorn in Pelosi’s side.
During a recent interview with The Washington Post, Ocasio-Cortez even seemed to claim Pelosi is racist.
In recent weeks, Pelosi has been lightly attacking Ocasio-Cortez, even once stating that a “glass of water” could beat her when it comes to re-election.
And in response to this, Ocasio-Cortez brought out the race card, stating that it is “outright disrespectful” to single out a “newly elected women of color.”
That’s when President Trump launched a rare defense of Pelosi, stating that Ocasio-Cortez should show more respect to her, considering she has been in office for a long time.
“I think Cortez is being very disrespectful to somebody who’s been there a long time,” the president told reporters at the White House ahead of a scheduled visit to Wisconsin. “I deal with Nancy Pelosi a lot and we go back and forth and it’s fine, but I think that a group of people is being very disrespectful to her,” the president continued. “And you know what, I don’t think that Nancy can let that go on.”
The freshman congresswoman “should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect,” he concluded.
In a Wednesday interview with the Washington Post, Ocasio-Cortez hit back at Pelosi for declaring the political irrelevance of “The Squad” — made up of Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and herself — for voting against the border funding bill supported by Democrat Party leadership.
“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” the 29-year-old told the newspaper. “But the persistent singling out… it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful… the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”
President Trump defending Nancy Pelosi is something nobody expected.
When it comes to Democrats, he is usually the one to launch the attacks.
But calling Pelosi racist simply for insulting Ocasio-Cortez seemed to be too much for the President.
