Speaker Nancy Pelosi jokes that ‘it will take days to fact-check’ Trump’s State of the Union speech

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi mocked the “misrepresentations” in President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address in her post-speech remarks.

The “outrageous lies” in Trump’s speech are already being fact-checked.

“It will take days to fact-check all the misrepresentations that the President made tonight,” Pelosi predicted.

She also had harsh words for his “fear-mongering” in an effort to build his wall — that both Mexico and Congress have refused to fund.

“Instead of fear-mongering and manufacturing a crisis at the border, President Trump should commit to signing the bipartisan conference committee’s bill to keep government open and provide strong, smart border security solutions,” Pelosi counseled.

Pelosi also pointed out that Trump neglected to mention gun violence in his address to a joint-session of Congress.

“Sadly, while talking about perceived threats to the safety of the American people, he completely ignored the gun violence epidemic that is claiming lives across the country,” she noted.

The House Speaker charged that Republican policies had damaged the middle class.

“With the complicity of the GOP Congress over the last two years, President Trump failed the middle class by trying to take away Americans’ health care and enriching the wealthiest 1 percent,” Pelosi argued. “The state of the American middle class has been weakened by President Trump’s special interest first agenda.”

Pelosi said Trump needs to reverse course in the second half of his term.

“President Trump must now take concrete steps to work with Democrats to strengthen the health and economic security of families across America. After two years of the President’s empty words, the American people deserve real results,” Pelosi concluded.
