Washington D.C. (Talk Media News) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) came out swinging Thursday, saying Republicans have surrendered to Donald Trump’s “dangerous discrimination agenda.”
Pelosi, also took a shot at House Speaker Paul’s anti-poverty agenda that the Speaker unveiled earlier this week.
“They’re so called (anti-)poverty agenda will make work life harder for struggling families. They’re releasing their national security plan today, desperately trying to distract the American people.” Pelosi said. “It’s long been clear that the regular order is not as important to republicans as protecting their special interests agenda, which includes discrimination.”
Pelosi sent out a memo on Wednesday, chastising Ryan for cancelling his regularly scheduled press conference. “Speaker Paul Ryan will not be available to answer your questions today about his surrender to Donald Trump.”
Speaker Ryan’s office did not respond to requests for comment on Pelosi’s criticism.
Pelosi also paid respect to Senator Bernie Sander’s (Vt) presidential campaign, and did not criticize the candidate for still hanging on to his campaign.
“He has to make his own decision,” she said. “He should be treated no differently than other candidates. He should be allowed the opportunity … and have the opportunity to make his decision about how he’d raise this to a place that advances the causes that he’s been fighting for.”
Prior to Tuesday’s primary Pelosi formally announced that she endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.
