During a Thursday press briefing, House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi once again attacked the Trump administration’s border policies, stating:
“if you are a mom who wants to escape rape, murder and gang violence for your child, and you’ve tried to come to asylum in the United States – you are unfit, and we’re taking your child away from you.”
Then referencing the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City, Pelosi continued on calling the act of war that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans an “incident,” before going on to claim that it was actually Democrats who pushed for border security in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.
Nancy Pelosi refers to the 9/11 terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans as just an “incident.”
Pelosi then falsely stated the Trump admin separated families because they believe moms “who want to escape rape, murder and gang violence for their child” are “unfit.” pic.twitter.com/JLIwLwzCYu

Many outraged Twitter users took to the social media platform to respond in disgust and overwhelmingly stated that Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments are further proof of how “out of touch” with the average American citizen she and other establishment politicians are.
How dare this thing say anything about 9/11….did she ever come to NYC to see the killing field?? Ground Zero is unlike any attack on American soil and we trudged forward and still hold the deep scars and fear… Pelosi is living in a fantasy land…

TERM LIMITS are the only answer to politicians like Fancy Nancy! She and her husband are multi-millionaires…the taxpayers are responsible for her $$$! Every word out of her mouth is moronic! The “crumbs” (Trump tax-cuts) are a huge help to US!

What about the rape, murder and gang violence that has been allowed into the US through lax laws? What about American mothers and children who have been subjected to these things? Sorry, Nancy, but your word salads aren’t very convincing. 🥗

STFU You weren’t at WTC on 9/11. It wasn’t an incident. We cops are still dying from 9/11. It was & is life changing. It was horrible. Tell all the families that died that day & all the first responders still dying it was just an “incident” @NancyPelosi
