WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested in a Sunday sit-down that President Trump would like to “abolish” Congress.
“The impression you get from the president is he would like to not only close government, build a wall, but also abolish Congress, so the only voice that mattered was his own,” Pelosi said in an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning” host Jane Pauley.
Pauley asked if it was “bluster” when the president told Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and other Congressional leaders at a meeting Friday that he would keep the government closed for months or even years in order to get his proposed border wall. The government has been partially shut down for two weeks and one day.
“Well, I hope so, but the fact is he’s said it again and again,” Pelosi answered.
She explained that the purpose of Friday’s White House meeting was to get the government reopened.
