When she was asked by the press if she plans to file a legal challenge after the President declares a national emergency, she responded to the bias press and asked, “Did I say I was filing a legal challenge? I may… that’s an option.”
She went on to explain that she will review her options and then began trashing the President when realizing she just got Trumped!
“It’s not an emergency, first of all, what’s happening at the border. It’s a humanitarian challenge to us.” She said while clearly being in denial and trying to defend her crooked party in front of the press. (Video Below)
Pelosi was at a loss for words and realized President Trump won this fight for the American people.
Instead of being happy that America will be protected and safe, she tried to turn the subject to gun violence. Bitter and seething through her teeth she asked, “Why don’t you declare that an emergency, Mr. President?”
