Trump: Pelosi ‘Deserves’ To Be Elected Speaker

US House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California holds a press conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, December 17, 2015. US lawmakers have announced the creation of a group to promote US interests as newly restored US-Cuba relations evolve. Twelve lawmakers from both parties did so in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. The Cuba Working Group in the House of Representatives is to be formally created on December 17, 2015. It will push to "advance policy proposals that are in our national interest in an era in which the US-Cuba relationship is rapidly being reshaped," the letter said. Thursday marks the one year anniversary of the announcement by the US and Cuba that they would restore ties severed during the Cold War.

President Trump said Wednesday that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “deserves” to be the next Speaker after Democrats won back control of the House in Tuesday’s midterms, and suggested Republicans could vote to ensure it happens.

“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!” Trump tweeted.

The president called Pelosi on Tuesday night after Democrats were projected to take back the majority in the House and acknowledged Pelosi’s calls for bipartisanship in her victory speech.

  1. Do people really not get what our great president is doing here??? He’s facing the reality! Whether we like it or not the dems now (will) control the house. The president understands that and he is trying his best to be able to work with her for the good of the country so he’s trying to compliment her. He has nothing to loose and only to gain by having her on his good side. If it will happen is a whole different story but we know that he’s great at negotiating and although I will be shocked if indeed she and the rest of the bunch do what the country needs its a great move on trumps part .
