President Trump jokingly encouraged the Democratic Party to continue supporting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in a tweet on Friday afternoon.
Democrats, please do not distance yourselves from Nancy Pelosi. 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!

“Democrats, please do not distance yourselves from Nancy Pelosi. She is a wonderful person whose ideas & policies may be bad,” he tweeted.
The president has gone after Pelosi frequently, labeling her as weak on borders and in favor of the vicious MS-13 gang.
He went after her and the Democrats, tweeting, “The Border has been a big mess and problem for many years. At some point Schumer and Pelosi, who are weak on Crime and Border security, will be forced to do a real deal, so easy, that solves this long time problem,” back on June 23.
Many Democratic candidates and current members of congress have come out and announced that they would not support her for a leadership position. Recently, Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dodged questions from CNN’s Chris Cuomo on the subject.

A new poll released on Thursday revealed that nearly 75% of the people surveyed believe that Pelosi should be replaced in November. 49% of the registered Democrats stated that they wouldn’t support her. (RELATED: POLL: Nearly Three Fourths Of People, Half Of Dems Think Pelosi Needs To Go)
