President Donald Trump gave a new nickname to Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi in a tweet encouraging California Republicans to turn out for House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy.
Get the vote out in California today for Rep. Kevin McCarthy and all of the great GOP candidates for Congress. Keep our country out of the hands of High Tax, High Crime Nancy Pelosi.

Trump has targeted Pelosi repeatedly since she defended the humanity of MS-13 gang criminals calling her an “MS-13 lover.” He also told supporters at a recent rally that Democrats are “more interested in taking care of criminals than they are in taking care of you.”
In a recent public appearance, Trump declared, “I notice, recently, [that] Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, as an example, are trying to defend MS-13 gang members. I called them ‘animals’ the other day. I was met with rebuke. They said, ‘They’re people.’ They’re not people. These are animals.
