Trump Gives Nancy Pelosi a Backhanded Compliment

Even Trump said in a tweet that he hoped Democrats don’t force Pelosi out of her leadership role.

Rice said she has spoken with a number of other House Democrats following Tuesday’s loss, and some of those members – including Democratic whip Steny Hoyer and assistant Democratic leader Jim Clyburn – share her concerns about the current leadership, . “But my decision about how long I stay is not up to them”. “So, we are paving a way for a new generation of leadership”. “Well, I’m a master legislator”.

“The Democratic Party needs new leadership now”, Cunningham tweeted on Wednesday.

Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., who also attended the meeting, said, “in every corner of our caucus, we’re concerned”. I love the arena.

During the race, Ossoff’s Republican challenger, Karen Handel, largely sidestepped Donald Trump, running a traditional GOP campaign. “And you can’t get away from the fact that in Georgia this was seen as a test of whether the resistance by Democrats was going to overpower the Republicans or whether the Trump vote would hold”. “I don’t think anybody’s fighting back. And we have one goal: winning in 2018”.

“I think I’m worth the trouble, quite frankly”, Pelosi said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks about the recent attack on the Republican Congressional Baseball team during her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., June 15, 2017.

Calls for Pelosi to step down are coming from as far as MA, a voting jurisdiction that would like to inherit the prestige that California enjoys as a Democratic stronghold.

Other Democratic leaders echoed his sentiment.

Nancy Pelosi insists she isn’t going anywhere. He said the DCCC’s polling and data shows that they are competitive, particularly in some swing seats that Republicans carried past year by double digits.

Pelosi also has a long history of holding her party together through hard votes – enabling former President Barack Obama to shepherd into law a series of Democratic-backed measures in 2009 and 2010 and later forcing Republicans to grapple with the politically damaging divisions within their own ranks.

“But I take their insult against my city as a bankruptcy of values on their part not to recognize the greatness of the city I represent”, she said. She referenced that the GOP spent millions of dollars promoting House Speaker Paul Ryan since he was on the 2012 ticket as the vice presidential ticket and “I have a hundred million or so spent against me and his numbers are no better than mine”.

David Gergen, who advised former Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, appeared on CNN’s Erin Burnett Outfront and said Wednesday that Democrats who are contemplating retaking the White House in 2020 should take heed of the special elections; all of which have ended in losses for Democratic candidates.
