House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats “cannot accept a second term for Donald Trump.”
“We have to make sure — this will sound political but we have to make sure that the Constitution wins the next presidential election,” Pelosi said. “We can’t be worrying about well, how long is this going to take? Well, that will take as long as it does. And we will press the case so that in the court of public opinion people will know what is — is right. But we cannot accept a second term for Donald Trump if we are going to be faithful to our democracy and to the Constitution of the United States.”
“And that is just the fact,” she continued. “So we have to operate on many fronts. We have to operate in the Congress, in the courts, and in the court of public opinion, and we must win the next election.”
The comments came while discussing Democrat priorities at Cornell University's Institute of Politics & Global Affairs Tuesday.
On Saturday, Pelosi’s colleague, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), said Democrats must impeach Trump to ensure he’s not re-elected.
“I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this president, he will get re-elected,” Rep. Green told MSNBC. “If we don’t impeach him, he will say he has been vindicated. … If we allow political expediency to Trump moral imperative, we will have created a shameful situation that this Congress that will never live down, history won’t be kind to us. We must impeach him.”
