TRUMP CLAIMS: “WE’RE SOON GOING TO HAVE A ONE-PARTY SYSTEM”

After House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi slammed him in an interview over the weekend, President Trump responded by accusing her of undermining the Democratic Party.

He even suggested that Democrats would end up becoming irrelevant.

In a “Fox & Friends” interview that aired Tuesday ahead of his address to a joint session of Congress, Trump branded Pelosi “incompetent” and said she’s “done a terrible job” as a party leader.

“You know, if you look at what’s going on with the Democrats and the party, it’s getting smaller and smaller,” Trump said.

“You know, in a certain way, I hate to see it, because I like a two-party system and we’re soon going to have a one-party system. I actually think a two-party system is healthy and good. But she’s done a terrible job.”

Pelosi drew the ire of the president for her comments on ABC’s “This Week,” where she called Trump the “deflector in chief,” arguing that some of his more attention-grabbing maneuvers were a distraction from the absence of a jobs-creating infrastructure plan.
