During a speech, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said she prays for President Trump. The comment was part of a press conference where she criticized the president for his approach to infrastructure.
“I pray for the president of the United States,” the California Democrat said. “And I pray for the United States of America.”
She followed that up with what appeared to be a prayer for intervention. It seemed that she not so much prayed for President Trump as that he would no longer be president.
She said, “I wish that his family or his administration or staff would have an intervention for the good of the country.”
She confirmed that with her next comment: “Maybe he wants to take a leave of absence.”
Trump responded to Pelosi's prayer remarks on Twitter. He said he was thankful for her prayers, but he seemed to know that her comment might not be sincere.
"Democrat leadership is tearing the United States apart, but I will continue to set records for the American People – and Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers, I know you truly mean it!" Trump said.
This isn't the first time that Pelosi has said she prays for President Trump. In one 2017, after a gunman shot Congressman Scalise, she said she prays for Trump.
"I pray for Donald Trump that his presidency will be successful and that his family will be safe," Pelosi said on the House floor. In 2018, she also said that she prayed Trump would "resist" a government shutdown.
Wow! Pelosi is taking shots at President Trump again. What do you think of her claim to pray?
