According to Fox News, In the midst of a contentious midterm election season, President Trump took aim at Nancy Pelosi on Friday, pleading with Democrats not to “distance” themselves from the House minority leader.
While labeling the Democrat “a wonderful person,” Trump tweeted that although her “ideas & policies may be bad,” she “should definitely be given a 4th chance.”
Full Tweet: Democrats, please do not distance yourselves from Nancy Pelosi. She is a wonderful person whose ideas & policies may be bad, but who should definitely be given a 4th chance. She is trying very hard & has every right to take down the Democrat Party if she has veered too far left!
“She is trying very hard & has every right to take down the Democrat Party if she has veered too far left!” the president tweeted.
Trump’s latest apparent condemnation of the California Democrat comes as congressional candidates in the party have reportedly started to turn their backs against her in growing numbers.
As Written By The Guardian:
As the House Democratic leader since 2005, Pelosi is unpopular (her approval rating was 29% in a national Quinnipiac University poll in February) and extremely well known (83% of voters in the Quinnipiac survey knew who she was). That twofer of familiarity and voter fatigue is why the demonization of Pelosi remains a staple of Republican attack ads.
Even when Democrats try to escape Pelosi, as Lamb has done in his campaign, partisan politics grants limited wriggle room. As the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette put it in a snippy editorial endorsing the Republican, Rick Saccone, in the congressional race: “Mr Lamb … attempted to distance himself from ultra-liberal Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and says he would not vote for her to lead his party. But who would he vote for? An abstention will not win him independence from the Democratic caucus.”
