Pelosi and Dems Tell Trump Not to Run in 2020 — His Campaign Says There’s ‘Zero Chance’ of That Happening

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), appeared in a Rolling Stone video in which she urged President Donald Trump not to run in the 2020 presidential election — and his campaign clapped back at her statement.

Appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, Pelosi, along with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Jahana Hayes (D-Conn.), were represented as the “women shaping the future.”

In the Rolling Stone video, each Democrat shared what they would say to the president if they had an opportunity.

Read each of their response below:

HAYES: “If I were talking to President Trump, I would remind him that you are my president as well, and I recognize the weight of the office, so it’s not about a person, it’s not about a position, it’s about the office of the president and the responsibility that goes along with that office.”

OMAR: “The people of the United States are looking for a leader that unites, and you have an opportunity to step up into that leadership position.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ: “If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention.”

PELOSI: “Mr. President, do the country a favor — don’t run.”

However, Pelosi’s hope that Trump won’t run in the 2020 race won’t become a reality, according to Trump’s campaign.

Trump’s 2020 campaign national press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, and former congressional press secretary Rochelle Ritchie appeared on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” late Friday to discuss the speaker’s remarks.

“There’s zero chance of that happening,” McEnany said. “I can tell you the president is excited for this campaign. He’s geared up. He’s ready.”

The campaign press secretary blasted Pelosi for saying Trump shouldn’t run for re-election, saying that the House speaker “can’t argue against success.”

McEnany said Pelosi’s message is “pathetic” and that she “should spend less time paling around with a socialist and a congresswoman with anti-Semitic remarks and spend more time focusing on working with the president.”

In defense of Pelosi’s statement, Ritchie said Pelosi’s statement was “very sarcastic,” adding that Trump has “had some accomplishments, but at the same time, he’s had a lot of failures.”

Things got heated as the two went back and forth about the president.

“Let me finish, I let you finish and share your litany of falsehoods,” McEnany told Ritchie at one point.

Watch the video below:

Mirroring McEnany’s remark that there’s “zero chance” the president is backing out of the 2020 race, Trump made it clear at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday that he’s ready to take on the 2020 presidential election with full force.

Have to strongly disagree with Rep. “Vodka” Pelosi and her female Socialist and Muslim comrades. In fact, i feel the 22nd Amendment should be repealed so Trump can run for a third, fourth and maybe fifth term if HE wants. He’s certainly been the best Republican POTUS I can remember since Ronald Reagan while thinking as far back as Democrat FDR in the 1930’s and 1940’s.

…or you’ll do what Nancy?

As far as the country needing a uniter, AOC, how’d that work out with Obozo? Maybe you should disavow the tribalism that is identity politics.

PELOSI: “Mr. President, do the country a favor — don’t run.”

I disagree. I think that he should run and test his policies in this market place of political ideas. Let’s hash this out!
