'You keep thinking that, Mr. President'
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brushed off President Donald Trump's prediction that Republicans to win control of the House this November, calling it "delusional."
On Thursday, Trump said during the final presidential debate that he believes Republicans will take over the lower chamber come Election Day.
But Pelosi is not buying it.
"You keep thinking that, Mr. President," Pelosi told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday.
"You just keep on thinking that. Just another example of delusional statements he made there."
In 2018, the Democrats won control of the House.
Pelosi said she would run for speaker again if Democrats keep control of the House, adding her party must also flip the Senate.
