WATCH LIVE: TRUMP SENATE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 2

Nancy Pelosi Mocks ‘Insecure’ Trump For Voter Fraud Investigation: ‘I Felt Sorry For Him’

Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tut-tutted President Donald Trump‘s planned investigation into whether millions voted illegally in the 2016 election Wednesday, chalking it up to his own insecurity.

“For a person who is a newly elected president of the United States to be so insecure as to declare… ‘I’ve won the popular vote, three to five million Americans voted illegally,’ to suggest and undermine the integrity of our voting system is really strange,” she told reporters at her weekly press conference.

Pelosi pointed out that Trump’s own lawyers argued that there was no significant voter fraud when contesting Jill Stein‘s failed recount. She also noted that Trump’s investigation comes after he fought tooth and nail against recognizing Russian interference in the election.

“I frankly feel very sad about the president making this claim. I felt sorry for him,” Pelosi said. “I even prayed for him, but then I prayed for the United States of America.”
