During a trip to the United Kingdom prior to the G7 Speakers meeting, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided it was a good time to slam supporters of former President Donald Trump while she represents the U.S. overseas.
Pelosi described the 80 million people who support the former president a cult, continuing to divide the U.S. and trying to turn everyone else around the world against Trump and his supporters.
Pelosi said: “It is a privilege to join my G7 colleagues in the United Kingdom to discuss a top priority for legislatures and governments across the world: how to balance security and openness, particularly in light of challenges from the coronavirus pandemic, cyberthreats and terrorism. Public access to the workings of government is a cornerstone of democracy, and it is therefore imperative that parliaments and legislatures remain as open and transparent to the public as possible. We need to hear from – and be accountable to – those we are privileged to represent, as we work to deliver results in their lives.”
“I say to my Republican friends, and I do have some,” she went on to say, adding: “Take back your party. You’re the grand ole party of America. You’ve done wonderful things for our country. You have now been hijacked by a cult that is just not good for our country. Take back your party. Don’t let it be dominated by those who want to suppress the vote because they do not have a positive message to win. They want to suppress the vote and that is how they would win.”
In recent weeks, the house speaker ramped up her message addressed to the members of the Republican Party.
During an appearance at a Smith College event in Northhampton, Massachusetts, Pelosi mentioned that she thinks the U.S. should have a “big, strong Republican Party.”
The house speaker said: “I say to my Republican friends, take back your party. The country needs a big, strong Republican Party. And I say that as a leader in the Democratic Party.”
She then went on to accuse that the current GOP now is only made up of “cult” personalities leaning extremely to the right.
“Don’t have it be a cult of personality on the extreme, extreme, extreme right … This isn’t about liberal or conservative, it’s about radical…uh…shall we say, they don’t believe in governance,” Pelosi said.
