Trump backs Pelosi: ‘Keep her right where she is’

Like a skilled property owner, Donald Trump is living rent-free in the heads of Democrats.

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Friday, the president threw his support behind an embattled Nancy Pelosi to remain the leader of House Democrats.

When asked about what fretting Democrats should do after their string of special election losses, Trump responded, “I hope she doesn’t step down.”

“I think that it would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down,” the president deadpanned.

“I’d be very, very disappointed if she did. I’d like to keep her right where she is because our record is extraordinary against her,” he added.

Trump’s backhanded compliment will only fuel Democrats’ angst.

On Thursday, Pelosi defended herself and attempted to dismiss a growing chorus of Democrats who want her to step aside.

NBC News reported:

Pushing back on criticism from fellow party members after the Democratic loss in a Georgia special election this week, Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she’s “worth the trouble” as Democrats’ leader in the House.

“I feel very confident about the support that I have in my caucus,” Pelosi said at a press conference in the Capitol after Republicans featured her in almost every ad attacking Democrat Jon Ossoff in the Georgia congressional race which he lost Tuesday.

“I think I’m worth the trouble, quite frankly,” she concluded. “I love the fray.”

“We’re paving a way for a new generation of leadership, and I respect any opinion that my members have,” she said. “But my decision about how long I stay is not up to them.”
