Trump Says He May ‘Take Over’ Nancy Pelosi’s Congressional District to ‘Clean It Up’

President Donald Trump gave a long and rambling interview to Fox & Friends on Monday, which was still going on at the time of writing. Trump covered a number of topics relating to the Covid-19 global pandemic and took the time to attack Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Trump claimed that the federal government would build hospitals with 2,900 bed capacities in 3 to 4 days before criticizing the California Democrat. Pelosi has been critical of Trump’s reaction to the Coronavirus outbreak.

“This is an amazing thing, and we’ve been given a lot but we’ve also, then you hear Nancy Pelosi, whose you know, somehow there’s something wrong with the woman because she knows what the we’ve done,” Trump said over the phone.

“Then you look at San Francisco, how her area where she lives has become like a slum,” he said. “It’s a slum and she should focus on that. Of course she lives in a beautiful house over the ocean, but her area that she’s in charge of has become, from being one of the best in the whole country, it’s become a slum and they don’t do anything about it. They leave it there.”

“In fact the federal government – we may get involved and take over that area, and clean it up and the homeless are being, I mean, everybody, it’s such a mess,  it’s so bad, and yet she will sit there and complain.”

“All she did was focus on impeachment,” Trump went on. “She focused on impeachment and she lost and she looked like a fool, and frankly, it unified our party, and I have to say this , it’s never pleasant, but my poll numbers are the highest they’ve ever been because of her, so we’ll see how it turns out but she should never say a thing like they said.”

Representatives are not ‘in charge’ of their districts in the way Trump suggests. His suggestion that the federal government could ‘take over’ the area is also bizarre.
