Donald Trump claimed Sunday that Nancy Pelosi is not fit to serve as questions over her status as third-in-line to the presidency emerge after she formed a commission on removing from office presidents deemed unfit.
‘I don’t think she could pass basic aptitude test personally,’ Trump told Fox News Sunday morning. ‘I really don’t, I don’t believe it.’
The comments come as concerns from conservatives arise over the fact Pelosi could rise to power in the case of a contested election.
On Friday, Pelosi rolled out legislation to set up a commission under the 25th Amendment to weigh whether a president is incapacitated.
She claimed the move had nothing to do with potentially removing COVID-19-stricken President Donald Trump and having Vice President Mike Pence take over.
