Pelosi: Trump Does Not Have ‘Shared Values’ With Congress

June 17, 2019

In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria at the Council on Foreign Relations, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Trump did not have “shared values” with the Congress of the United States.

Asked by Zakaria if it isn’t time for Congress to get serious about overseeing executive declarations of emergency, Pelosi answered, “Yeah, I think Congress were accomplices in some of these things, but were dealing with presidents with whom we had shared values and to give the president the facility to do what he needed —or hopefully one day, she needed to do.

“But it has gone too far. And if it’s a national emergency, it’s one thing, but if it’s to declare a national emergency that doesn’t exist, isn’t —is an exploitation of an opportunity that shouldn’t be taking place,” she added.
