House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused pro-lifers of putting their opposition to abortion over the tenets of democracy in a recent appearance on former Sen. Hillary Clinton's podcast.
"I think that Donald Trump is president because of the issue of a woman's right to choose," Pelosi said on the Jan. 18 episode of "You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton," blaming pro-life voters for boosting Trump into office.
"When you take the greed of those who want their tax cuts, that's probably a small number [of voters], but nonetheless a number," said Pelosi. Conversely, "then you take the abortion issue--and many of these people are very good people; that's just their point of view. But they were willing to sell the whole democracy down the river for that one issue."
Pelosi said that that support for Trump by pro-life religious voters is an issue that "gives me great grief as a Catholic."
