Trump: Pelosi Will Be Thrown Out As Speaker Again, People Think She Has No Idea What She's Doing

|

President Trump holds a Christmas Eve press conference at Mar-a-Lago and takes questions on impeachment in the Senate, Nancy Pelosi holding the articles of impeachment, Michael Flynn, and North Korea.

"All I know is my poll numbers are the highest they've ever been," Trump said Tuesday. "Our fundraising in the Republican Party is the highest it's ever been. She hates the Republican Party. She hates all of the people that voted for the and the Republican Party."

"She's desperate," the president said. "Look, she got thrown out as speaker once before. She lost like 63 seats, 61 or 63, tremendous, record-setting number of seats."

"I think it's going to happen again," Trump predicted. "She's doing a tremendous disservice to the country. She's not doing a good job."

"We weren't entitled to witnesses. We weren't entitled to lawyers. We sat in a basement. They would leak everything. They would leak it. We weren't entitled to do anything. They would leak selectively with the sick, corrupt politician named Schiff," Trump said.

"Fortunately, we have a President that was able to plow through all of the stuff that went on and goes on and also, tremendous amounts of information are being written about even by the fake news concerning FISA, concerning dirty cops," Trump said.

"We had dirty cops," he continued. "We had people spying on my campaign. They did terrible things. The likes of which have never been done in the history of our country. It's very sad. All right, have a good time everybody. Merry Christmas."

REPORTER: Mr. President, are you concerned Pelosi will hold up the articles of impeachment indefinitely?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, all I know is my poll numbers are the highest they've ever been. Our fundraising in the Republican Party is the highest it's ever been. She hates the Republican Party. She hates all of the people that voted for the and the Republican Party. And she's desperate to do--look, she got thrown out as speaker once before. She lost like 63 seats, 61 or 63, tremendous, record-setting number of seats.

I think it's going to happen again. She's doing a tremendous disservice to the country. She's not doing a good job. And some people think that she's--she doesn't know what she's doing. A lot of people think that. A lot of people have said it. They had no evidence at all. They had no crime.

We had 196 or so Republicans voting, 100 percent. We didn't lose one Republican vote in the House. We had three Democrats come over to our side and two in another instance, two in an additional instance. And we're in a very good position. Ultimately, that decision's going to be made by Mitch McConnell, and he will make it. He has the right to do whatever he wants. He's the head of the Senate.

People remember they treated us very unfairly. They didn't give us due process. They didn't give us a lawyer. They didn't give us anything. Now they come to the Senate and they want everything. You look back just two weeks. Just look back at what they did. But over a long period of time, look at what they did.

We weren't entitled to witnesses. We weren't entitled to lawyers. We sat in a basement. They would leak everything. They would leak it. We weren't entitled to do anything. They would leak selectively with the sick, corrupt politician named Schiff. You can't have time--even the recently when they had the Constitutional lawyers--they had three lawyers, we got one. Fortunately, our one lawyer is better than their three and we also had a much better case. We had a perfect case. I will say it again--we had a perfect case they had no case.

But they had three lawyers we were allowed one. Think of that--they had three lawyers Constitutional lawyers and each one spoke for an extended period of time. We had one lawyer. What do you think of that?

So now, they get to the Senate. And now, we have the majority and it's up to Mitch McConnell. And, we have the majority and now they want McConnell to do wonderful things for them. I mean he is going to do what he wants to do. But a smart guy, very good guy and a very fair guy but they treated us very unfairly and now they want fairness in the Senate. They want to look back on the last year to see how they have hurt this country.

Fortunately, we have a President that was able to plow through all of the stuff that went on and goes on and also, tremendous amounts of information are being written about even by the fake news concerning FISA, concerning dirty cops--the people that started this whole thing. What they have done to this country is incredible and hopefully it is going to be taken care of. The Attorney General is working and everybody is working but if you just go because I like to stay adamant and I do stay adamant if you just go by what you see in the papers it is incredible what is going on.

We had dirty cops. We had people spying on my campaign. They did terrible things. The likes of which have never been done in the history of our country. It's very sad. All right, have a good time everybody. Merry Christmas.
