President Trump declared on Sunday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) push to launch a commission for “presidential preparedness” is a ruse to set up the replacement of Joe Biden with running mate Kamala Harris after the election.
Last week, Pelosi shocked America by declaring that she’s planning to launch a commission on presidential preparedness that could invoke the 25th amendment to interfere in the normal processes of the transfer of presidential power.
Pelosi also has made multiple comments about Trump’s health and treatments he’s undergone for COVID-19, implying that he is mentally unstable and potentially unable to carry out his duties.
These comments, in combination with her 25th amendment comments, have given rise to speculation that she is planning to attempt removal of Trump from office on the basis of health concerns.
However, Trump told Fox’s Maria Bartiromo that he believes Pelosi is actually planning to use the 25th amendment to place Kamala Harris in the oval office if the Biden/Harris ticket wins the upcoming election.
Bartiromo asked for Trump’s reaction to a video clip of Pelosi’s musings about the 25th amendment earlier this week. In the clip, Pelosi claims that “the 25th Amendment creates a path for preserving stability if a president suffers a crippling physical or mental problem and is un — quote — in the amendment — “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office and transfers his powers.”
Well, I think she’s talking about Joe Biden, because, to be honest with you, he’s the one that’s got the problem.
And, obviously, it’s obvious to anybody that watches him speak. He’s the one that got — that has the problem. And they want to put a super radical left person in, like Kamala, who’s worse than — who’s further left than Bernie Sanders.
And that whole thing is breaking up now, because the left isn’t getting what they want. All of a sudden, they’re back into fracking and all the things that they talked about they wouldn’t do, and now they’re saying they’re going to do them. And the left is very unhappy.
I’m going to get a lot of people because of my great policies on trade. They’re going to — just like last time, Bernie Sanders’ people are going to vote for me because of what I have done on trade, because what I have done on trade is a miracle.
And we have a long way to go, because, frankly, they interrupted it with the impeachment hoax and various other things.
But, no, I think she’s talking, and a lot of people think that she’s talking about Joe Biden, getting him out.
