Nancy Pelosi Tells Europe She Has Equal Power To POTUS: “Trump NOT In Charge”

Nancy Pelosi tells European leaders she has equal power to President Trump

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told European globalists in Brussels that she has equal powers to President Trump. 

Pelosi and a delegation of lawmakers were visiting Brussels to convince European leaders that they had control of America amid uncertainty around transatlantic relations.

Pelosi boasted about her recent standoff over the government shutdown, claiming it to be ‘evidence’ of her power over POTUS.

“We’re not a parliamentary government even though we’re parliamentarians,” Pelosi told reporters at a news conference.

“We have Article 1, the legislative branch, the first branch of government, co-equal to the other branches and we have asserted ourselves in that way.”

Newsweek.com reports: Democratic Representative Gerry Connolly, who was part of Pelosi’s delegation during the visit on Monday and Tuesday, elaborated on Pelosi’s remarks on the power of Congress.

“Is this a reassurance tour? I think it’s a reminder tour, that the United States government is not just one branch,” Connolly said. “And as the speaker said, Article 1, the first article in the Constitution of the United States, deals with the powers of the legislative branch, not the executive branch, and those powers include war and peace and even direction of the armed forces.”

Pelosi added, “And the power of the purse,” referring to the fact that it is up to Congress to authorize budget requests by the president to fund executive agencies.

The House speaker proved her power late last month when she and other congressional Democrats refused to provide $5.7 billion in funding that Trump demanded to build his border wall, eventually forcing him to relent and temporarily reopen government without any of the money.

After a negotiation period, Trump reluctantly signed a bipartisan deal that allocates only $1.375 billion for 55 miles of wall, to prevent another government shutdown. Last Friday, Trump declared a national emergency in an attempt to get the rest of the funding needed for the wall.

Following Trump’s national emergency declaration, Pelosi tweeted that he took the action because she and her colleagues would not give him what he wanted.

“Clearest sign that @realDonaldTrump’s #FakeTrumpEmergency is not legitimate? The President himself says he didn’t need to declare a national emergency–it’s just a faster way to force taxpayers to foot the bill after Congress wouldn’t let him have his way,” she tweeted.

In Brussels, the European Union’s unofficial capital, Pelosi also tried to do damage control for trans-Atlantic relations that have been hurt by criticisms from Trump. A European colleague asked Pelosi why the House did not adopt a resolution supporting NATO sooner.

“I said, Because we just got the majority and then we can control, we can manage, what goes onto the floor,” Pelosi said.

  1. She’s already on the bad side of POTUS. And as proven by history so far, you don’t want to be on the bad side of Donald Trump.

  2. It looks like she and the demorats not understand what’s behind the national emergency.
    Trump is going to use “Monsanto” on them, “NoRat” is not strong enough.

  3. Time to Boycott Everything from New York & California. From (SNL) to Hollywood, Fruits, Almonds to WallNuts to Wine Country.. Keep your $$ Out of those 2 States and lets see the Chickens of Liberalism come home to Roost….

    • Heh, heh there, not ALL of us Californians are complete idiots. I’m a lifelong Republican. I’ve voted Republican since I was 18 years old.
      In other words, I was raised properly.

      • There are probably more Conservatives/Republicans in California but because of longterm voter fraud, it’s hard to tell.

  4. lol..@. equal power.. THIS WOMAN IS A FUCKING NUTCASE…… Now the Europeans really are FREAKING OUT… nice work CRAZY nancy…………. IDIOT

  5. 3 Equal Branches of Government.
    If the President and Vice President were to be removed then she would become President.
    But the Statement she made is not True.
    She made another Fake News Statement that MSM dares not challenge.
    Mrs. Clinton “If that f – – – ing bastard wins, we all hang from nooses!”
    I wonder why the Wicked never rest.

  6. She went to Brussels to reassure her global pedophile convention that she is in charge? Before this is over, she may need to ask Bergoglio for sanctuary.

  7. We are witnessing a soft coup attempt!! Pelosi wants to takeover so she can hand the Presidency to Hellery Rotten Clinton

  8. Everything she says or does causes me to despise her and Schumer more and more. She has no idea what the ‘”fly over ” country thinks about her crap or else she is choosing to ignore it.

    I think she is practicing traitor and should be removed and put into a very deep dungeon to never see the light of day again. She truly fits the description of a traitor….see: 18 U.S code 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government. “…Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or afiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of person, knowing the purposes thereof –Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction. …”.

    There is more. Who is protecting her, Schumer, Maxine, AOC, the Muslims? It must be Soros as he has a big stake in development of a globalist society.

    I do not understand why Trump and his minions are not going after these people. I can almost guarantee if you or I acted like Nancy Pelosi we would be in the hoosegow already and the noose would be tightening.

  9. Nancy is a wicked, vile woman who sees herself as the first woman president if she can just get rid of Trump!! She and Schumer are using the Congress to run their resistance movement against Trump, the GOP and Trumps base, they believe they can keep this up through his presidency 1st term and they seriously think the Dems will win the 2020 election and theyll be back in full power with Obama calling the shots!! Let’s face it, if they win the WH, theres no way any of those involved with the collusion scandal are getting punished and theyll continue to trash Trump for whatever they can!! They dont want him proving things are possible when theyve been sitting on their hands taking in the bucks more & more!!!
