(The Post Millennial) – House speaker Nancy Pelosi stated during an interview with CBS News anchor Gayle King that she does not believe Democratic nominee Joe Biden should debate President Donald Trump, accusing Trump of having “no fidelity” to the U.S constitution, facts or truth.
Pelosi also stated that while she believes Biden will perform well against Trump, despite claims of cognitive decline from numerous outlets, that the president’s comments make him a “danger to our democracy.”
“Trump and his henchman are a danger—with their comments—are a danger to our democracy. So I don’t want to give him—why bother? He doesn’t tell the truth, he isn’t committed to our Constitution,” Pelosi said to King, who pushed back against Pelosi’s statements.
The House speaker has previously rejected the idea of the Democratic nominee debating president Trump in a debate, stating in August during her weekly conference that Biden should avoid attempts to “legitimize” Donald Trump.
“But Speaker Pelosi, that’s what people say is the problem: Your language is, to some, is just as egregious as what they’re saying. By calling the president’s people ‘henchman,’ some could say, that’s just as insulting as what he’s saying about you,” said King.
Gayle King just put Nancy Pelosi in her place for calling Trump supporters henchmen.
Pelosi is projecting. It she & the Democrats have no regard to the constitution. It is them who said Biden should not concede under ANY circumstance. That’s a declaration of war https://t.co/RB2EqQw3WC

Pelosi disregarded King’s comment, stating that she doesn’t care what Trump says about her and that she is simply “speaking truth”.
“Our Constitution is at the mercy of people who have no allegiance to the Constitution of the United States. They have repeatedly demonstrated that,” said Pelosi, recalling Trump’s recent comments at the White House in which he declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power when asked by a reporter.
Pelosi concluded by stating that she believes both candidates should “just take their own stage for any number of conversations” on any subject. “Let that be a conversation with the American people,” she said at the time, “not an exercise in skullduggery.”
