President Donald Trump on Wednesday declared that Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) “is no longer the Speaker of the House.”
“No, she’s lost her way,” Trump said, responding to a reporter’s question regarding whether he tried to stave off Pelosi’s impeachment announcement during a phone call on Tuesday.
“She’s been taken over by the radical Left. She may be radical Left herself, but she really has lost her way,” Trump continued. “I spoke to her about guns yesterday. She didn’t even know what I was talking about.”
Trump later claimed that the Democratic Party as a whole has been hijacked by the “radical Left.”
“The whole party is taken over by the Left,” Trump said. “They’ve been taken over by a radical group of people, and Nancy Pelosi, as far as I’m concerned, unfortunately, she’s no longer the speaker of the House.”
The false statement seemed to catch CNN host Brooke Baldwin by surprise.
“Okay. Last I checked Nancy Pelosi is the Speaker of the House,” Baldwin observed. “I have no idea what he was referencing there.”
