Pelosi: ‘I Felt Sorry’ for Trump When He Made Voter Fraud Claims; ‘I Even Prayed for Him’

‘But then I prayed for the United States of America’

 

PELOSI: “For a person who is newly elected president of the United States to be so insecure as to declare — he is now the president, he’s in the White House and he’s saying, ‘I won the popular vote. 3 to 5 million Americans voted illegally in our country.’ To suggest and to undermine the integrity of our voting system is really strange. But in addition to that, on top of it he wants to investigate something that can clearly be proven to be false but he resists an investigation of a Russian disruption of our election and any connection to his campaign. All we want is the truth for the American people. I frankly feel very sad about the President making his claim. I felt sorry for him. I even prayed for him. But then I prayed for the United States of America.”
