Asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if she would accept the election results if President Trump wins reelection, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “of course” she would.
Tapper asked “If President Trump wins reelection in November do you think Democrats would accept it as legitimate? Would you accept it as legitimate?”
“Of course.” Pelosi replied. “But that doesn’t mean that we will not shout out against his initiatives, whether it’s to tie up the Postal Service so that we will not have the opportunity for people to vote by mail, to not having to choose between their health and their vote.”
She continued “It doesn’t mean that we ignore the Russian interference into our election and they try to cloak it by saying, ‘Well, we look at many countries.’ No, the Russians 24/7 are interfering into our election. The President welcomes it.”
Pelosi continued “So, again, it isn’t a question of accepting the result. The question is, is making sure the public knows that they must vote, they must have a plan to vote, they must vote early because their playbook is one that has all kinds of obstacles to participation in our country.”
