Trump Warns Pelosi 'Radical Left' Democrats Are Plotting to Take Her Down
'The radical left is going take over' the Democratic Party, president predicts
President Donald Trump has issued a warning to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that "radical left" Democrats are plotting to take her down and gain control of her party.
The president made the comments on Sunday during a pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, in which he described Pelosi as a “very nervous, very confused woman.”
Trump says he believes Pelosi is now seeing her fears realized after initially being resistant to pursue impeachment proceedings against him.
“I don’t think she wanted to do this,” Trump explained.
“I think she really knew what was going to happen, and her worst nightmare has happened.
"I don’t think she’s going be there too long, either."
"I think that the radical left – and she’s sort of radical left too, by the way – but I think the radical left is going take over,” President Trump warned.
The remarks came only three days before the Republican-controlled Senate appears set to acquit Trump on charges brought by the Democratic-controlled House.
The president is expected to soon be acquitted of obstructing Congress and abusing his authority in relation to withholding military aid to Ukraine.

Asked by Hannity about his potential Democratic rivals, Trump singled out Mike Bloomberg.
The former mayor of New York has spent millions of dollars on TV ads criticizing the president.
“You know, now he wants a box for the debates to stand on,” Trump said.
"OK, it’s OK, there’s nothing wrong. You can be short.
“Why should he get a box to stand on, OK? He wants a box for the debates.
"Why should he be entitled to that? Really. Does that mean everyone else gets a box? … I would love to run against Bloomberg.”
Bloomberg had been registering in the single digits in polls heading into Monday’s Iowa caucuses, the first voting test for the Democrat primary field.
Asked by Hannity about Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, Trump called him a “communist.”
“Well, I think he’s a communist,” he said.
“I mean, you know, look, I think of communism when I think of Bernie.
"You could say ‘socialist.’ Didn’t he get married in Moscow?”
Hannity added that Sanders had honeymooned in the Soviet Union.
Trump compared him to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), whom he suggested panders to voters.
“She’s not true to it,” Trump said.
“I call her ‘fairy tale.’ Because everything’s a fairy tale.
"That’s how Pocahontas got started. This woman can’t tell the truth.”
