On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” House Minority Leader Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that the message that Democrats have always been on the side of the working class wasn’t communicated clearly before blaming “all of the interventions. And frankly, the focus that was placed in the media on emails and hacking” for distracting from the message.
Pelosi said that while Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, that’s like saying you got more runs in the World Series.
She added, “I think that the Democrats have always been there for America’s working families, that that was not communicated as clearly as it should have been in the election, with all of the interventions. And frankly, the focus that was placed in the media on emails and hacking, and the like — you know, it’s a distraction from the message. But let’s just take full responsibility for the fact that what we stand for is what is in the interest of America’s working families. I think they will see that when they see the policies of President-Elect Trump in the White House, and that will help us differentiate more clearly.”
Pelosi continued that Democrats would never go into an election without people understanding that they are on the side of working families.
