House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Thursday in a floor speech that she will remain in Congress but not seek to be re-elected as Democratic leader after Republicans gained the majority in the chamber during the midterm elections, despite her prediction in October that Democrats would “hold the House by winning more seats”, as previously reported by The Freedom Times.
In her farewell remarks, Pelosi expressed how she enjoyed working with Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama and Joe Biden, but appeared to purposely ignore 45th President Donald J. Trump.
“I have enjoyed working with three presidents, achieving historic investments in clean energy with President George Bush; transformative health care reform with President Barack Obama, and forging the future — from infrastructure to health care to climate action — with President Joe Biden,” Pelosi said.
