Democratic Rep Jeffries: Nancy Pelosi ‘Is a Legislative Mastermind’

“Nancy Pelosi is a legislative mastermind,” said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) on Friday defending House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after President Donald Trump begged Democrats not to distance themselves from Pelosi.

“Democrats, please do not distance yourselves from Nancy Pelosi,” Trump posted to Twitter. “She is a wonderful person whose ideas & policies may be bad, but who should definitely be given a 4th chance. She is trying very hard & has every right to take down the Democrat Party if she has veered too far left!”

Appearing on CNN’s Situation Room, Jeffries threw his full support behind Pelosi proclaiming he strongly supports her and the leadership team that is currently in place:

“I strongly support Nancy Pelosi and the leadership team that is currently in place. Nancy Pelosi led us to the promised land back in 2006. Nancy Pelosi led us into the majority, to the promised land back in 2006, and I think she’s on the cusp, along with the entire Democratic Caucus, of doing that again.”

Jeffries continued praising Pelosi as a legislative mastermind and even attempting to give credit to former President Obama for the record low unemployment in the country:

“Nancy Pelosi is a legislative mastermind. She’s done a tremendous job. We’re going to be united and focused on delivering for the American people as we move forward––lower health care costs, increased pay. We’re in the midst of wage stagnation right now. We don’t have an unemployment problem, thank you Barack Obama, but we do have an underemployment problem.”

Jeffries comments came in response to a tweet from Trump on Friday.
