President Trump Friday said it would be a very sad thing for Republicans if Nancy Pelosi steps down, given that Republicans keep winning elections with her in charge of House Democrats
“I hope she doesn’t step down. I think that it would be a very, very sad for Republicans if she steps down,” Trump told Fox News. “I’d be very, very disappointed if she did. I’d like to keep her right where she is because our record is extraordinary against her.”
While Republicans are going to have to work on passing their own agenda and Trump needs to raise his own approval ratings in order for them to hold onto Congress in 2018, Pelosi is certainly a big help. She has become such an inviting target, even more so with Hillary Clinton fading from the scene, or at least fading from relevance.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer is equally annoying, at least in my view, but hasn’t yet caught on as a bogeyman in the way the Pelosi has.
Here’s a nice video of a Republican taking down Schumer.
