An official responsible for ensuring the majority party supports the passage of legislation through the House of Representatives will be removed from her post twice, the president predicted on Dec. 24.
Donald Trump believes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic Party is doing such a “tremendous disservice to the country” that voters will have no choice but to oust her and other Democrats at the 2020 general election.
“She is not doing a good job and some people think she does not know what she is doing,” he told reporters in a White House video recorded at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla. “She got thrown out as house speaker once before [in 2011,] she lost something like 61 or 63 seats, [a] tremendous and record setting number of seats. I think it is going to happen again.”
The president criticized Pelosi for continuing to postpone sending the Democrat-led House’s articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial, and suggested her actions reflect her political desperation.
“She hates the Republican Party, she hates all of the people who voted for me and the Republican Party,” he said. “She [is] desperate.”
He was also displeased with Democrats for treating him “very unfairly” from a legal standpoint in the history of the United States and without giving him “due process.”
“It has never happened before where you cannot have a lawyer, you cannot have a witness, you cannot have time,” the president said. “Even recently when they had the Constitutional lawyers they got three lawyers [and] we got one.”
Trump expressed full confidence in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s ability to run a fair and speedy trial.
“He has the right to do whatever he wants. He is the head of the Senate,” the president said. “[Republicans] have the majority and now they [Democrats] want McConnell to do wonderful things for them … they treated us very unfairly [in the House] and now they want fairness in the Senate.”
Trump is convinced there is no incriminating evidence that could constitute a punishable crime and the Republican Party, which enjoyed a $20 million jump in revenue throughout November, fully opposes the Democratic Party’s efforts to impeach him.
“We did not lose one Republican vote in the House, we had three Democrats come over to our side and two in an additional instance, and we are in a very good position,” he said. “My poll numbers are the highest they have ever been, our fundraising at the Republican Party is the highest it has ever been.”
