Pelosi Just Called Trump’s Bluff: ‘He’s A Great Dictator — That’s What This Is About’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a press conference on Wednesday to condemn Donald Trump’s racist attacks against her colleagues and claimed that he did it as a mere distraction to shy people away from his failed presidency.
“We weren’t saying he is racist,” she explained. “We were saying that the words that he used were racist.”
“We all know the argument that could be made against us in terms of our philosophy, in terms of our priorities and the rest,” Pelosi said. “And the president knows there are arguments that could be made against him and, therefore, he wants to distract from them.”
“You have to give him credit,” she continued. “He’s a great distractor. That’s what this is about.”
Pelosi encouraged Democrats to take the discussion “to a better place.”
“The president wants to make America great again. We all do. What does that mean? What is America?” she asked before launching into a speech about American ideals.
“We the people, they said in the preamble to the Constitution,” Pelosi remarked. “They also said imagine how different we would be, but they knew we had to be one. And that beautiful guidance, it’s something we must constantly keep in mind as we engage in our differences. At the end of the day, we want to be unifying and not dividing. I wish the president would read that.”
