Trump says ‘we’ll get rid of Nancy Pelosi’ in speech and slams Dems for ‘playing dirty with impeachment hoax'
DONALD Trump vowed "we'll get rid of Nancy Pelosi" as he slammed Democrats for "playing dirty with the impeachment hoax" during a comeback speech in North Carolina on Saturday night.
It came after the former president praised the idea of him running for the House and replacing Pelosi as House Speaker so he could impeach Joe Biden as "interesting."
Trump told the crowd at a dinner for the North Carolina Republican State convention that the GOP is "going to take back our country and take it back at a level ."
"Bad, bad things are happening to us perhaps like never before," he added.
"As we gather tonight, the country is being destroyed before our very own eyes.
"Police departments are being ripped apart and being defunded.
"They're vicious," Trump said of Democrats.
"They’re violent. They hate our country and and they have bad policies.
The former president also took a hit at his own party as he said at least the Democrats "stick together."
"They don’t have some of the people we have," Trump claimed, in an apparent reference to the likes of Liz Cheney who have stood against him.
"We’regoung to have a tremendous 2022, like we did in 2020," he continued.
"We had a great election but bad things happened."
He blasted the Democrats again as he slammed Biden on immigration.
"Our border is wide open, illegal immigration is skyrocketing, drugs are pouring in, our industries are being pillaged by cyber attacks.
"Our leaders are bowing down to China, being demeaned and humiliated, our freedom taken over by left-wing cancel culture."
The speech marked the first televised remarks from Trump in more than three months.
The former president has already hinted that he will make another bid for the presidency in 2024 and has suggested that he is also eying a run for the Senate.
Yet ahead of a comeback speech in North Carolina on Friday night, Trump branded the idea of him running as early as 2022 "interesting."
The former president was speaking with far-right radio host Wayne Allyn Root who suggested that Trump could flip to house back to the Republican party if he ran in the midterms.
"Why not, instead of waiting for 2024, and I'm hoping you'll run in 2024, but why not run in 2022 for the United States Congress?" Root said.
"A House seat in Florida. Win big. Lead us to a dramatic landslide victory. Take the House by 50 seats.
"Then you become the Speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden," the radio host continued.
"You'll wipe him out for this last two years."
Trump did not rule out the suggestion of replacing current speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"That's so interesting," he answered. "You know, it's very interesting."
Trump would not need to become an elected member of Congress to become House Speaker.
It is not required by the constitution that the speaker is in the House of Representatives but every person to take on the role so far has been.
