Trump thinks he can fire Nancy Pelosi: 'She's no longer the Speaker of the House' (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump is wanting to either fire or demote Nancy Pelosi, just one day after she launched an official impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives, a power given to her by the U.S. Constitution.
But, he should know, as president he can't do that. He's not a dictator and there is this thing called separation of powers you learn about in grade school.
Trump went on a rant about how Pelosi is not "interested" in gun control, despite House Democrats already passing gun control legislation. Mitch McConnell simply refuses to allow it for a vote in the Senate.
"Nancy Pelosi has lost her way. She has been overtaken by the radical left. I spoke to her about guns yesterday, she's not interested in guns. Let me tell you, Nancy Pelosi is not interested in gun safety, she's been overtaken by the radical left."
That's when he said it: "Nancy Pelosi, as far as I'm concerned, unfortunately she's no longer the Speaker of the House."
It was after Trump let his rage get to him that he stopped taking questions, but this wasn't his last press conference of the day.
Flanked by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Trump continued his tirade in front of the press. We wonder if everything he said was true. Here's one bit:
"So many leaders came up to me today and they said, 'sir, what you go through, no president has ever gone through. And it's so bad for your country.'"
Does anyone believe any leader did this? We need names.
