We reported last week that Nancy Pelosi has a big problem–Democrats are rejecting her leadership in huge numbers.
Perhaps seeking to regain credibility with the progressive base, Pelosi went on national TV this week to accuse President Trump of wanting to “make America white again.”
It’s so terribly sad the year has gone by quickly but it has not diminished the sorrow this is for our country. We’ve gone backward, and the president with all of his statements is the master of the dog whistle. Everything he has done, whether it’s taking babies out of the arms of their moms, whether it’s issues that relate to health care in our country, access to services and the rest is — his whole thing is ‘Make America White Again.’ That’s his thing.
He can say a nice thing today in a tweet, but the fact is his actions speak louder than his words, and every day in the Congress we have to fight those initiatives. I’m very proud of House Democrats on different committees who fight those initiatives.
It’s unclear whether these remarks will endear Pelosi to the progressives. But with 2018 around the corner, it won’t be surprising to hear her taking a vocally anti-Trump tack.
