Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) warned during her appearance at Northeastern University that our civilization is on the line in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
"This election is a very important election. In my view, civilization as we know it is at stake. It’s about everything. It’s about America. We ask God to bless America. What is America? America is our Constitution. America is our Constitution, the genius of the separation of powers, 'a republic if you can keep it,' Benjamin Franklin. All of the Bill of Rights and all that that contains, and that is under siege," Pelosi said at the NU's Women Who Empower Summit.
Pelosi said she believes President Trump's administration has "a disloyalty to the Constitution."
"What is America? This beautiful land from sea to shining sea and beyond, which is being degraded almost every day in D.C. and again, denial about climate and the rest of that, disloyalty to the Constitution, denigrating newcomers, degrading the environment. As America, our values, our values which are being undervalued, devalued by the current attitude in D.C.," she continued. "Now I know this isn’t a political arena, but you asked a political question. So what do you expect?”
During the same event, Pelosi also remarked how she usually votes for women because of their gender. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who was a frontrunner at one point, dropped out of the presidential race last week after failing to come in first or second place during the primaries. The only woman left in the Democratic race is Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI).
