Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on MSNBC that President Donald Trump was an “accomplice” to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s attempts to undermine America’s democracy.
When asked if Trump is engaged in voter suppression, Pelosi said, “Yes, indeed. I think that’s exactly what his purpose is. It’s to say why should you vote, your vote will not be voted as cast. It’s a tactic that must be ignored. Leader Schumer and I are writing to our colleagues about this very subject that again undermines the legitimacy of our elections, and it’s in Putin’s style, and Putin likes to discredit democracy, ours, or others around the world. The president is being an accomplice in that and what he is saying.”
