Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday accused Vice President Pence of “selling out the Constitution” to financially benefit President Trump following the vice president’s stay at one of Trump’s properties in Ireland.
Pelosi argued in a statement that Pence was just the “latest Republican elected official to enable President Trump’s violations of the Constitution,” saying that that American people deserved better from its government.
“Vice President Pence promised that their Administration would defend the Constitution and stand by a ‘strict constructionist‘ interpretation of the Constitution,” she said. “Instead the Trump-Pence Administration is ignoring the text itself and selling out the Constitution to line Trump’s pockets.”
She added that Trump’s properties were a “cesspool of corruption” and a “black hole for tax payers’ money.”
