Trump Claims Pelosi's 'Worst Nightmare Has Happened' With Senate Likely to Acquit Him


In a pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, President Donald Trump said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is “very nervous” amid the impeachment proceedings.

During the interview, Hannity asked Trump to respond to the names of prominent politicians with the first thoughts that came to his head. 

When it came to Pelosi, Trump called her a “very confused, very nervous woman,” and suggested that she is fretting about the outcome of the impeachment effort. 

“I think she’s a very confused, very nervous woman. I don’t think she wanted to do this. I think she really knew what was going to happen. And her worst nightmare has happened.”

Trump continued to suggest that progressive elements with the Democratic Party in the House will try to oust her from her position. 

“I don’t think she’s going to be there too long either. I think the radical left — and she’s sort of radical left too, by the way — but I think the radical left is going to take over.”

 Additionally, Trump downplayed the chances that he would be able to work with Congressional Democrats post-impeachment. 

“I’d like to, but it’s pretty hard when you think about it. Because it’s been such a — I use the word witchhunt, I use the word hoax — I see the hatred. They don’t care about fairness. They don’t care about lying. You look at the lies. You look at the reports that were done that were so false. The level of hypocrisy. So I’m not sure that they can do it. I think they just want to win, and it doesn’t matter how they win.”

Democrats have refuted claims that the impeachment proceeding was fueled by hatred of the president, and noted that they have worked Trump to get legislation signed into law. 

Trump’s comments come just days before the Senate is scheduled to vote on Wednesday on whether to convict or acquit him on two articles of impeachment.

It is not expected that Democrats will be able to cobble together the required two-thirds majority — or 67 senators — to vote to convict Trump on either article of impeachment.
