Trump’s New Prediction Makes Pelosi Cry
During a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki,” Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) strongly criticized former President Trump for expressing his desire for an economic crash within the next 12 months. Pelosi mocked Trump’s self-proclaimed title as the “messiah” and suggested he lacks a true understanding of the consequences such a crash would have on American working families.
In Trump’s earlier statements on the economy under President Biden, he predicted a forthcoming crash and expressed his hope that it would occur within the next year, before the completion of Biden’s first term. Trump, positioning himself as the GOP frontrunner for the upcoming presidential election, emphasized his reluctance to endure a term similar to that of President Hoover, who faced the onset of the Great Depression in 1929.
Pelosi condemned Trump’s remarks as a manifestation of his insensitivity and self-centered political agenda. She argued that his comments demonstrated a lack of concern for the well-being of American working families, accusing him of prioritizing his political prospects over the nation’s interests.
Economists, despite Trump’s pessimistic outlook, have generally expressed optimism about the economic future, citing the success of the “soft landing” after record-high inflation. The White House and Biden campaign responded to Trump’s comments, describing them as “vile” and exposing his “twisted true colors.”
Pelosi, a longstanding critic of Trump, also took issue with his attempt to claim credit for the positive aspects of the current economy. She dismissed his statements as both stupid and untrue, asserting that the country is not merely living off the “fumes” of his administration. Instead, Pelosi praised President Biden’s achievements, highlighting job creation, reduced unemployment, and progress in addressing social, economic, and environmental justice. She concluded by emphasizing that Trump lacks the understanding to appreciate Biden’s accomplishments.
