Former President Donald Trump’s re-election bid for the White House in 2024 has been ridiculed by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
When speaking about the Capitol riot on January 6, the Democrat took a shot at Trump during an event at Cambridge University on September 16.
“I reference him from time to time as ‘What’s-his-name,'” Pelosi said. “If he wants to run again, he’ll be the first president who was impeached twice and defeated twice.”
The audience erupted in cheers as she made her speech.
Meanwhile, Trump has hinted at a re-election candidacy but has not made an official announcement.
“This president had acted in a way that was in violation of the Constitution, undermined our national security, and jeopardized the integrity of our elections — and that was just the first time,” Pelosi said, referring to the first impeachment fight related to Ukraine.
Pelosi then addressed Republicans with a message.
“I’d say to my Republican friends — and I do have some — take back your party. You’re the Grand Old Party of America. You’ve done wonderful things for our country,” Pelosi said.
“You’re now being hijacked by a cult. That’s just not good for our country.”
