Pelosi Calls Building The Wall a 'Manhood Issue' for Trump, Says Democrats Won't Cooperate With It

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told Harvard students Tuesday that President Trump’s desire to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico is a “manhood issue” for him.

“In my view it’s immoral, expensive, ineffective, and not something that people do between countries,” Pelosi said about the wall proposal.

“But, in any event it happens to be like a manhood issue for the president and I’m not interested in that,” she said, causing the students to laugh and applaud.

She also emphasized that President Trump shouldn’t be able to say that Democrats aren’t interested in protecting the border.

“That isn’t the only way to protect the border,” she said, “in fact, it’s probably the worst way to protect the border.”

Pelosi told Politico earlier Tuesday that she didn’t see “any” Democrats voting to fund a border wall.

“I don’t see any of us voting for wall funding,” she said. “We have a responsibility to secure our borders. There are ways to do that that are consistent with civilization, humanitarianism and who we are as a nation. We have to remove all doubt about that.”

Republicans and Democrats are getting ready for a fight over border wall funding following the upcoming midterm elections and whether or not Democrats are able to retake the House from Republicans will be a key factor in the amount of leverage they will have in the debate.

Pelosi told Politico that if Democrats take back the House they would lead with a campaign finance reform bill, then push to lower drug prices, establish a background-check system for gun purchases, and craft legislation  to protect Dreamers.
