House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has urged Republicans to “withdraw their party” from the “cult” of allegiance to former President Donald Trump.
Ms Pelosi made the remarks on Thursday to an audience of students at the University of Cambridge in the UK,newsweek informed of.
She said: “I tell my Republican friends – and I have some – take back your party, you’re the oldest party in America, you’ve done amazing things for our country. Now you’ve been hijacked by such a cult. Which is not good for our country.”
The House speaker covered a range of topics in his speech, which he delivered in the University Association’s Historical Debate Room.
She said many Republicans are disregarding widespread support for gun-control policies in the country, such as background checks for buyers, and women’s right to choose safe and legal abortion. She also said that those trying to limit access to voting do not respect America’s diversity.
Ms Pelosi said: “Take back your party, don’t let it dominate those who want to suppress the vote because they don’t have a positive message to win, they want to suppress the vote and that’s how they will win. ”
She continued: “Take back your party so it’s more a reflection of Republicans in the country than allegiance to the former president and one of the ways we can help improve that situation is by passing H01 Which would be redistribution in a way, it’s again agnostic, along the lines of a Voting Rights Act. It may not benefit Democrats, but it can benefit the country because it allows Republican districts to be more open to other people. Will make open those who are in Congress now.”
