House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi revealed Friday that she was ready to retire from Congress if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had won the November election over President Trump, the Washington Examiner reported.
Pelosi told reporters following a discussion at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor that if Clinton had won the White House, she “was ready to go home” after 14 years as House Democratic leader and four years as speaker of the House.
“If Hillary had won, I was ready to go home,” Pelosi told reporters. “It was really shocking that someone like Donald Trump would be president of the United States. We yearn for the day of a Mitt Romney or a George Bush or someone. But anyway, that motivated me to stay now.”
