Fox News’ Jesse Watters commented on the growing backlash House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing for withholding the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, which is currently denying the president a fair trial as outlined by the U.S. Constitution.
According to Fox News, if Watters were Trump, here’s how he would engage the Speaker.
“She wants the impeachment without the acquittal but she’s not gonna get what she wants because eventually, this strategy is gonna run out of the road,” Watters said, referencing the fact that as soon as she turns over the impeachment to the Republican-controlled Senate, headlines of “Trump Impeached” will quickly morph into headlines that read “Trump Acquitted” or “Trump Exonerated.”
“The only thing she’s enjoying right now is watching Trump complain. If I were the president, I would stop, declare victory, I would say Nancy looks weak, she looks scared, she looks tired and eventually the articles will get kicked up and he’ll get the acquittal he’s looking for,” Watters added.
Trump seized on Pelosi’s unprecedented stalling tactic in a series of fiery tweets over the holiday break, hitting Pelosi on impeachment and the staggering homelessness issue that plagues the very district that the California Democrat represents.

“Crazy Nancy should clean up her filthy dirty District & help the homeless there,” one of Trump’s tweets read.
He also took a jab at Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom.
“Nancy Pelosi’s District in California has rapidly become one of the worst anywhere in the U.S. when it come to the homeless & crime. It has gotten so bad, so fast – she has lost total control and, along with her equally incompetent governor, Gavin Newsom, it is a very sad sight,” Trump tweeted.
